Eye-catching, attractive and extremely unusual, the Three Legs of Man are proudly displayed all over the island. The earliest use of the Three Legs within the Isle of Man, which can be dated, is in 1310 when they appeared on the shield of Henry de Bello Monte, Governor of the Island for King Edward II of England. They also appear on the Manx Sword of State which is thought to date from around 1230. The Three Legs symbol also appeared on Manx coins from the 17th Century.The latin surrounding the triskelion is "Quocunque jeceris stabit" which is the motto of the Isle of Man. In English the meaning is "Whereever you throw it, it will stand".
As is expected, being the national symbol of the Isle of Man, we have a wide selection of products with the 3 legs on them.
