Isle of Man Post Office issued a set of stamps illustrating the familiar national symbol, the "triskelion".  On the Isle of Man it can be seen everywhere from public buildings and monuments to chocolate bars and tattoos.

The current eight-stamp main postal issue for the year showcases the huge variety of applications for this most ubiquitous image and reveals its ancient origins. Often written around the image, the accompanying motto "Quocunque Jeceris Stabit" translates as "whichever way you throw me I will stand" and encapsulates the spirit of the Manx nation.
