You cannot call something "Trinity" and avoid all religious associations.  In 
fact, I doubt you could call it anything and avoid all religious 
associations.  As has been pointed out, you couldn't even use pasta.

If the logo is to be in any way associated with the name, it is likely to be 
tri- something.  (Even a T has three points)  Things have associations.  
Perhaps try to avoid flaming crosses, black flags and swastikas, but trees 
are difficult, as has been pointed out, and are used too often by people 
looking for a logo with no associations (SOAS, University of London and the 
British Conservative Party to name two fairly recent ones from my personal 
experience.)  Trees have associations for many people.  I associate oak trees 
with Druids.  Evergreens with Norse gods, Cedars with the Lebanon (fine) and 
my school (bad).  Etc.  

We cannot avoid associations.
