The triskelion, often known as the triskele, is a sign made up of three interlocking spirals. It is said to have originated in Greek mythology and has been employed by various cultures throughout history. The triskelion has been recognized as the national flag of the Isle of Man and is a significant emblem of Manx identity.

The three legs of the flag are thought to represent the three legs of the Manx triskelion, and the red background represents the island's political and military past. The Isle of Man government also uses the flag, which is displayed on government buildings and at official ceremonies.

Country information

The Isle of Man is a self-governing British Crown Dependency located in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland. It has a long history, with evidence of human habitation dating back to before 6500 BC. Throughout its history, the Isle of Man has been influenced by various cultures, including Gaelic, Norse, and English, and has developed its own distinct language, culture, and identity. The island has a strong economy, with industries such as insurance, online gambling, information and communications technology, and banking contributing significantly to its Gross National Product (GNP). The Isle of Man is also known for its tax haven status and offshore banking sector.

In terms of government and politics, the Isle of Man is a parliamentary democracy with its own legislature, known as Tynwald. The head of state is the Lord of Mann, currently Charles III, who is represented on the island by a Lieutenant Governor. The United Kingdom is responsible for the island's defence, and the Isle of Man has always retained its internal self-government. Tynwald was the first national legislative body in the world to give women the right to vote in a general election, although this excluded married women.

The Isle of Man is also known for its annual TT Motorcycle Races and the Manx cat, a breed of cat with short or no tails. In 2016, the Isle of Man was designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, recognizing its unique natural and cultural values.
