The Gaeilge name for Ireland is Éire and comes from the name of a Gaelic goddess. Ériu is believed to have been the mother goddess of Ireland, a goddess of sovereignty, or simply a goddess of the land. The phases of the Moon have been used to represent the life cycle of Women in many cultures. This is popularly represented by two crescent moons back to back and a full moon in the centre. The waxing moon represents the girl in her youth, the full moon represents fertility and childbirth and the waning moon the Wisdom of the older woman. This design represents female fertility.
