Two hands are holding a crowned heart in this loving symbol. The Claddagh is an emblem that represents love, friendship, and loyalty. Some believe the right hand of the emblem represents Dagda, the father of the Celtic gods, and the left hand represents Anu, the mother goddess. Beathauile, a mystical, universal Celtic spirit, is thought to be the crown. According to the Christian interpretation of this legend, the crowned heart represents God the Father, while the two hands represent his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
