The familiar symbol of Sicily, the trisceli (triskelion in English) is an ancient symbol going back thousands of years. The original Greek word from which it is derived means literally "three legs".

During the 8th century BC, the Greeks had been searching for new lands when they found what is now known as Sicily. Discovering the three pointed, triangular shape of the island, they called the new land Trinacria, from the greek word trinacrios (meaning triangle).

Soon afterwards, the three legged image was adopted as the symbol of the island and has remained so until modern times. It now appears on the official flag of Sicily and in various forms around the island.

The symbol is most often depicted with a head of Medusa in the center, and in this case it's also represented with the trinacria in the background, as seen on a building in Palermo.
