The Claddagh Symbol
The meaning, significance and history of the Claddagh symbol has a rich ancient past that dates back to over 300 years. A small fishing village in Galway, Ireland called the Claddagh was where the tradition of the Claddagh rings first started. The word Claddagh itself comes from the Irish term 'An Cladach' that means a 'flat stony shore'. The crown symbolizes Loyalty, the heart - Love and the hands represent Friendship.
