TRISKELION

Three bent armoured legs, arranged in a circle. "Wherever you throw me I will stand." The symbol of the Isle of Man, aka Niflheim or Ellan Vannin. Code for a cauldron, which stands on three legs, where metal is smelted and potions brewed.


The Isle of Man has been a centre of metalwork since antiquity. It's an island of watchmakers even today and is the fifth most likely nation to launch a spaceship


From the top of Man’s highest mountain on a clear day you can see England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
