    I’m not sure, but it looks a lot like a symbol for the Trinity that I have seen before. Thank. It look nice.

    Not sure. It’s basically a triskelion, but the three “arms” are not identical as would be expected. Maybe the pretzel in the middle symbolizes the eternal bond of the Germanic and Celtic peoples over our shared love of food?

    TRIQUETRA – with Circle….Called the Triquetra, which means “three-cornered” in Latin.
    The celts left no reference to the original symbols so their meanings have been built by groups who have acknowledged a design and agreed upon its meaning or representation as past down over the ages.

    To early Christians, it symbolized both the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son and God The Holy Spirit).

    Also considered to represent fish (“pisces”) – shown as three fishes. In the first centuries of Christianity when believers were persecuted,the fish was a valuable symbol. When two believers who did not know each other met, one would draw half the fish in the sand. If the other person completed the another half of the fish they knew they were safe to talk of their beliefs

    The Circle represents unending love, as in God’s or Jesus’ unending love for man and woman.
