Can a Roman Catholic wear a Celtic symbol?

I am interested in Celtic heritage. Can a Catholic wear a Celtic symbol?

It would depend on the symbol and the reasons for wearing it. Ordinarily speaking, it is not a problem to wear symbols of one’s cultural heritage, and many Celtic symbols (e.g., the Celtic cross, the Celtic knot) have Christian meaning.
