Bee Gees & Sicily
The Bee Gees
were born in the Isle of Man, in the UK. I was born, live and work in the
wonderful and historical Italian Isle of Sicily. Some time, long ago, when
I knew more about the birthplace of the Bee Gees, I immediately discovered
that the Bee Gees and my loved Sicily have something in common. What? Take a look at these symbols...
the ancient Sicily
can see very clearly, the symbol of the Isle of Man and the two symbols
of Sicily (first named Trinacria) look very similar...
On September 5, 1998, while I was attending the unforgettable Bee Gees
concert in Wembley, London, the IOM flag was shown
and I was particularly happy because I felt like something of "mine" was
spotlighted in that awesome show.
The origins of Trinacria are very ancient (7th century b.c.), but honestly
I can't explain the reasons of this undeniable similarity, but obviously
I'm very happy with it...

Just a few days after the official opening of Bee Gees Italy, Isle of Man's famous DJ Bernie
Quayle, the very known author of the very successful and interesting
audio-documentary "The Bee Gees come home to Ellan Vallin",
sent to me the following message, also concerning the "IOM@BeeGees@Sicily"
13 December 1998
from the Isle of Man, birthplace of the Bee Gees.
I am Bernie Quayle, a radio presenter on the island's local radio station
"Manx Radio". I must first congratulate you on being appointed the BGI representative
for Italy. Secondly, congratulations on your fantastic Bee Gees web site.
I have one big thing in common with the brothers, we were all born in the
same room of the same hospital in the Isle of Man. I spent a week at the
Miami homes of brothers in December 1997 and produced a two hour radio documentary
of their lives which we broadcast last Christmas.
I was delighted to note your lovely island also uses the three legs symbol
as part of the flag. The Bee Gees are very proud of that symbol.
It is my belief that our 3 Legs symbol is much older and far more significant
than historians recognise. I found the same or similar symbols used in many
ancient cultures. For example, the Hopi Indians on the west coast of America
have a very similar symbol. Thousands of years ago, monks in India used
a similar symbol in their teachings and in all cases the symbol was used
to denote the trinity which Christianity names as the Father, Son &
Holy Spirit.But I came to see it as the 'speck of dust' referred to by Moses
- the Atom with its three main particles. We are all made up of atoms -
the building blocks of life in the physical plane and we are all atoms in
the body of God.For me, the theory that life evolved from the sea does not
conflict with the early chapters of Genesis. Take a look at the ancient
sea gods, Mannanin, Neptune, Poseidon, they are all shown holding the 3
pronged spear - the principle of three-in-one.The Isle of Man is named after
the celtic sea god Mannanin and the Bee Gees - to me- are a perfect example
of the 3 in 1 principle in their harmonies, it must have been the influenece
