The Triangle is a symbol for the Christian Trinity

Uhhh... wut? That image is clearly the All Seeing Eye, not the Triune Cross. The Trinity in Christianity is usually represented by the cross... The All Seeing Eye has different connotations....

In "Renaissance European iconography" the triangle with the eye in the center "was an explicit image of the Christian Trinity." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_Providence#Religious_use

It is also a typical christian custom to depict God Father with a triangle halo: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rilakloster_Wandgem%C3%A4lde_a_20090407_012.JPGJPG https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Eberndorf-_West-_Bildstock_-_Hl_Dreifaltigkeit.jpg
