The origin of the symbol of the Trinacria which appears on the Sicilian flag dates back to ancient Greece.
It was the Normans that started to spread the use of this symbol on the island around the year one thousand.
In the odyssey Homer used the term Thrinakie – deriving from Thriman “three pointed” – to refer to Sicily in reference to the triangular shape of the island. Some scholars argue that the symbol was used as the personal seal of Agathocles, the tyrant of Syracuse around 300 B.C.
