History of Triangle signs
A triangle is one of the basic shapes of geometry: a polygon with three corners or vertices and three sides or edges which are line segments. Triangles are assumed to be two-dimensional plane figures, unless the context provides otherwise (see Non-planar triangles, below). In rigorous treatments, a triangle is therefore called a 2-simplex (see also Polytope). Elementary facts about triangles were presented by Euclid in books 1–4 of his Elements, around 300 BC. The measures of the interior angles of a triangle in Euclidean space always add up to 180 degrees. This allows determination of the measure of the third angle of any triangle given the measure of two angles. An exterior angle of a triangle is an angle that is a linear pair to an interior angle. The measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the two interior angles that are not adjacent to it; this is the exterior angle theorem. The sum of the measures of the three exterior angles of any triangle is 360 degrees.
Triangle Symbol Meanings
This sort of versatility is what captures themes of magic, wonder and creativity in the triangle meaning.
None of the other basic shapes offer this kind of inherent duplicity. When we turn a square on its side, the symbol meaning remains the same. Same with the circle – rolling it around, it’s still a circle.
But the triangle proposes mammoth (polar even) variables in meanings when tipped top from bottom. To wit:
Symbolic Meaning of Upright vs Upside Down Triangles
Any discussion about triangle meaning cannot continue without connecting it with the number three. Indeed, the triangle meaning is inseparable from the number three.
All the mystic teachings incorporate the power of three within their folds. Three represents the union of the numbers prior to it (One and Two). Numerologically speaking, if One represents force, and Two represents an opening, then Three is the birthing of true wisdom.

To the Greeks, the triangle is seen as the delta glyph and is symbolic of a doorway. This really appeals to me because it revisits the combination of polarities to push out a new opening. For example, balancing thought and emotion would provide a doorway to higher wisdom (the hypotenuse).
Triangles are featured in Aristotle’s conception of the five elements too (shown below). I contend that there is a deeper activity of creation inherent within each individual element. Certainly, combined these elements are the sum of infinite potential and Divine creativity. But individually they flicker their own creative sparks too.
Our lives are like giant lab experiments. We can introduce triangles and other symbols in our daily practices record the results of our findings; ultimately leading to development and growth.

Kartenz Studios is an animation studio which produced computer animated feature films, short films, and television specials, based in Jakarta. Founded on March 3, 2012. The studio created a three fictional character named Mr.B, Joke, and Shinta that producing for virtual band feature films with stage name, CHUCKILL.
