The Celtic Cross
Standing tall in the landscape. Rooted in the Irish soil. And yet reaching for the sky. Since early times, the Celtic Cross has marked sacred places all over Ireland.
Each one has its own tale to tell- with stories from scripture, carved in stone, preserved for future generations. From the shores of Lough Neagh and the Cathedral city of Armagh, to the monasteries of Clonmacnoise and Monasterboice, these high crosses are powerful symbols of early Christianity in Ireland.
One legend tells how St Patrick saw a pagan standing stone imprinted with a circle, the symbol of the moon goddess. He is said to have blessed the stone, marking it with a Latin cross- thus creating the first Celtic Cross.
Whatever the story, the Celtic Cross pays tribute to those ancient Celts whose legacy remains. And for all to see, it is a powerful symbol of faith. Now the story continues with those who wear a Celtic Cross. In doing so, we remember the precious heritage of Ireland. This land that has always been the home of saints and scholars.
The Trinity Knot Symbol
The Trinity Knot is often found in illuminated manuscripts like the Book of Kells (800 AD). The symbol has been used by Christians as a sign of the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
The Irish Shamrock
In ancient times, a tiny three-leafed plant bloomed far and wide and laid a carpet of green all over the limestone hills of Ireland. The druids knew the Shamrock has mystical powers. To them its three leaves were a natural sign of a sacred number. This little plant was even said to warn of an approaching storm by turning up its leaves.
According to legend, St Patrick himself plucked a Shamrock from the ground to explain his belief in the Trinity. They say this helped convert the Irish people to Christianity. Many believed that wearing this little green sprig of green would keep them from harm.
Over the centuries that have elapsed since then, the Shamrock has become an instantly recognisable emblem of the Emerald Isle.
Whatever the truth of the legends, the shamrock is cherished by Irish people everywhere and is worn by all nationalities around the world on Saint Patricks Day, one of the great international festivals.
The legend of the Shamrock lives on today in Solvar’s quality Irish craftsmanship. Inspired by ancient Celtic traditions and expertly created in Ireland, our exquisite designs reflect the country’s rich cultural heritage.
