THE MEANING OF THE SICILIAN TRINACRIA
The three bent running legs represent the three capes of Sicily, Peloro (North-East), Passero (South-East), and Lilibeo (West), which also create the three points of the triangle.
Native Sicilians, left breathless by the beauty of Sicily’s shores, likened and compared them to those of a woman.
The three ears of wheat, surrounding the head of Medusa (a gorgon with a head of snakes), represent the fertility of the land of Sicily. The Romans would celebrate the extreme fertility of the island, during a period when Sicily was the granary of the Roman empire.
The center Medusa head in the middle of the Trinacria implies the protection of the island by the goddess Athena, the patron goddess of Sicily.
The Trinacria’s shape is often referred to as a triskelion, a motif consisting of a triple spiral exhibiting rotational symmetry; this shape can be found in many places among the Mediterranean Sea and have all dated back to after the eighth century BC.
This Sicilian symbol has also been adopted by our government and is located on the center of Sicily’s flag.
