What is with the Celtic trinitarian symbol (the Irish knot variation) behind the Crossmen 2019 name.  Another clue?

It's (also) Norse - the triple horn of Odin.

As the Vikings began invasions of Ireland from 795 Anno Domini to 1120 A.D., which is several hundred years after Ireland had already embraced Trinitarian Christianity, perhaps there is a commingling of cultural symbols although the meanings of the symbols have become divergent over the ages. Crossmen designers will need be wary to express one one thing without being seen to representing the other. You know, that Cultural Sensitivity issue that is DCI au courant.

Cool story, bro. 

And here's guessing the only person worried about this symbol is you, who mocks the notion of cultural sensitivity.
