Description

The Shield knot is an ancient Celtic symbol of strength, resolve and protection. It was inscribed on shields to protect Celtic warriors on the battlefield and placed near the ill to ward off evil spirits.

Later, early Christians adapted the Celtic Shield Knot calling it the St. John’s Cross after John the Baptist. It also was termed the St. Hans cross. The symbolism of flowing water and the continuity of life was important during both the Pagan and Christian eras.
