The Isle of Man - a distinct Nation

The Isle of Man's unique status is represented by a number of national differences and distinctions.

The Manx flag consists of three jointed, armoured legs on a red background.  The three legs symbol or 'triskelion', thought to be derived from an ancient pagan sun sign,  is also, in a different variation, the national symbol of Sicily. On the Island, it was first officially used in the 14th Century on the Manx sword of state.
