Because the Celts themselves left very little information by way of records, most symbols are interpreted by archaeologists in context. Many Celtic symbols have changed in meaning over time, having been influenced by the introduction of Christianity and other cultures.

For some the shape of the design often determines the "meaning" of a knotwork design. For example triskele and trefoil shapes should be regarded as triskeles. Circles can represent unity or eternity. Spirals represent reincarnation or cycles of life and rebirth. Triangles the threefold dominions of earth, sea, and sky. Or more recently in history, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Squares or four-fold shapes are shield knots.
