Triskelion is literally a Greek word...

First time I hear that. From what I used to read triskell was a common symbol in Eurasia during the Neolithic era then associated to Celtic civilization since bronze age.

I can't find triskelion in my Greek-English Lexicon, but I did find τρισκαλμος (triskalmos) which means "with three benches of rowers." 

According to wikipedia, σκελος (skelos) means "leg." In my lexicon, Skelos has the following entry: "ΣΚΕΛΟΣ, the leg: επι σκελος αγαγειν to retreat with the face towards the enemy, retire leisurely. II. τα σκελη the legs

So triskelion would be "three legs"

I'm from Brittany, here the Triskell is a national symbol we share with the other Celtic nations.

Right. It is widespread overall though, I think. I think Sicily had it as a symbol once upon a time even, yet the Isle of Mann for instance has it as its flag (IIRC...?).
