Holy Trinity

The Tripod of Life representing the Holy Trinity

The "Tripod of Life" also known as "Borromean rings" is formed from a third circle being added to the Vesica Piscis, where the third circle's center point is placed at the intersection of the first two circles' The name "Borromean rings" comes from their use in the coat of arms of the aristocratic Borromeo family in Italy. The Borromean rings have been used in different contexts to indicate strength in unity, e.g. in religion or art. In particular, some have used the design to symbolize the Trinity.
