The Inspiration Behind the Isla Fortuna Quatrefoil Icon

The quatrefoil means "four leaves" in Latin. In art, architecture and traditional Christian symbolism, the quatrefoil is a type of symmetrical decorative framework which enjoyed peak popularity in Gothic and Rennaisance eras. It's also vey common in Spanish Colonial architecure, so we see it a lot around Puerto Rico, especially in San Juan. It's classic, yet looks fresh at the same time. Some also say it's a symbol of good luck and good fortune - another reason it's fitting for Isla Fortuna. We think it's beautiful and that's why we chose to use it as an icon for the Isla Fortuna brand. Here are a few photos we've snapped around San Juan.
