Pan Celtic Instrument / Sticker-Symbol & Banners

The Pan Celtic Symbols, Banners and Designs (such as those shown below) are copyright and ‘tm’ trademarks of the Pan Celtic International Council, and may not be used or reproduced in any form whatsoever without written advance notice being requested and sanctioned by the Pan Celtic International Committee.

The Pan Celtic Symbol was adopted in 1977 following an international competition. The symbol was designed by the Limerick School of Art and Design-the winners from hundreds of entries submitted.

The Pan Celtic Instrument / Sticker, incorporating the Symbol and the six (6) national flags, was designed by Polig Monjarret and Con Ó Conaill (and this is their intellectual property) as the result of a suggestion from the International Committee. It was adopted for use by Pan Celtic later that year. It has been used since 1986 as a sales product as well as a commercial and marketing instrument.
