When considering the natural world, the Celts found much symbolism, so the quaternary design could also have been representing each of the four physical elements: Earth, water, air, and fire. Quaternary knot designs can be indicative of the four directions – North, South, East, and West and/or the four seasons.

The four knot design is especially recognized because of the four distinct sections within the design. Without a beginning or an end, these knots demonstrate cyclical paths and the connection between all that is natural and eternal.
