Beannaithe ag Draoithe - Blessed by Druids

A project I plan to revive :
Beannaithe ag Draoithe - Blessed by Druids

According to Ellen Evert Hopman of the Order of the Whiteoak (Ord Na Darach Gile), “this symbol, designed by J. Craig Melia, is meant to function as a Druidic equivalent to the Kosher marks used in Judaism. The Triskellion is an ancient symbol and can be found throughout Europe, from Greece to Ireland. The variation used here, which incorporates the spiral into the design, is found throughout Celtic lands. This design was developed by consensus from Druids of several Orders, in the US, Canada, England, Ireland and other countries. We offer it freely as a gift to anyone who wants to use it. It is a logo that means ‘blessed by Druids’ and can be used on foods, medicines, religious statues, and on any item which has been Druidically blessed.” This particular idea, though nice, doesn’t seem to have gone anywhere.
