Triquetra (Latin: triangular) - The symbol is closely linked to the Valknut and Triple horns of Odin. Items baring the Triquetra have been found across all of the Viking world. It's true meaning to the Norse is uncertain, because the Triquetra was used by the Christian's to convey their own religious beliefs. Christian Viking kings of York would use the symbol on their coins, this shows that the Viking settlers had more than likely adopted the symbol with its Christian meaning.
It is also thought the trippl tipped image, symbolized the three most important Norse gods; Odin, Thor and Freyr.
