Ukraine's Trident is a symbol of the Holy Trinity

Also, the Ukrainian tryzub or trident has a fascinating history. Originally, the trident was the pre-Christian symbol of the sea-god Poseidon and came to represent sovereignty and dominion over the sea by those countries whose way of life involved much travel by - and waging wars on* -water.

The trident was assumed by the early rulers of Kyivan Rus'-Ukraine. St Volodymyr the Great claimed it for his Royal House and added the Greek Cross of Kherson to the middle bar after he was baptized. He shaped the trident so that they would come to represent two Cyrillic "B" letters, facing each other, and alluding to his name.

Each monarch has always had a "Royal Cypher" which is a kind of emblem expressing their name and title.

Thus, Queen Elizabeth the Second has a Royal Cypher "E II R" standing for "Elizabeth Regina the Second."

Thus, Saint Volodymyr developed the trident as a sophisticated Royal Cypher of his own.

The three bars of the trident signify the Holy Trinity with the Cross on the middle bar signifying the Son of God, Jesus Christ. But, the Trident has been known as a symbol of power in Central Ukraine since the 6th century. In Kyivan Rus the Trident was used by the great princes.

Some interpret the Trident symbol as the tip of a weapon, others a preying falcon, an arched bow with arrow, or the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Ghost). However, most scholars do agree that the Trident is a symbol of the highest power.

The first image of a trident appeared in the 1st century AD. When Ihor, Prince of Kyivan Rus' from 912 to 945AD, sent ambassadors to sign a treaty with the Byzantine emperor, they sealed the document with a trident. As the official emblem of the Kyivan princes, the trident was stamped on coins, seals; it was depicted on porcelain and in frescoes.

It is thought that the trident represented the division of the world into three spheres: the earthly, the celestial, and the spiritual as well as the union of the three natural elements of air, water and earth. The trident was endorsed as the official emblem of Ukraine; the blue and yellow flag as the national flag of Ukraine by the Supreme Rada in 1992.
