The origins of the symbol came from a humble Galway fishing village, but it is now one of the most recognizable symbols in the world.
The Claddagh meaning is all about love, loyalty, and friendship. The two hands represent friendship, a heart symbolizes love and the crown on top is for loyalty. Let's take a closer look at this traditional Irish symbol:
- Two Hands: These are clasped around a heart, the heart hands are a representation of friendship.
