Description

A form of the Triquetra symbol which has the exact geometrical proportions to be composed of three overlapping Vesica piscis symbols — something which is important to a few authors of books on Christian symbolism. (Ribbons version.) For other versions of the triquetra, see also Image:Triquetra-Vesica-solid.png , Image:Triquetra-Double.png , Image:Triquetra-Interlaced-Triangle-Circle.png , Image:Triquetra-tightly-knotted.png , and Image:Triquetra-circle-interlaced.png .

The six curve-intersection points define four small equilateral triangles, which make up one large equilateral triangle.
