Interesting about the flag of Ireland....
The national flag of Ireland, frequently referred to in Ireland as 'the tricolor' and elsewhere as the Irish tricolor, is the national flag of the Republic of Ireland. The flag itself is a vertical tricolor of green, white and orange. The proportions of the flag are 1:2 (flown horizontally, the flag is half as high as it is wide).
The Irish flag was flown publicly for the first time in Waterford in 1848 by Thomas Meagher, a leader of the Young Irelander movement. It was presented as a gift to Meagher from a small group of French women sympathetic to the Irish cause of religious liberty.
He explained to the Irish people the symbolism of the flag's three colors: "The white in the center signifies a lasting truce between the orange and the green", he said, "and I trust that beneath its folds the hands of the Irish Protestants and the Irish Catholics may be clasped, in generous and heroic brotherhood".
The green represents Irish nationalism (Catholics); the orange, Ireland's protestant minority, and the Orange Order; the white, lasting peace between the two.
It was adopted by the Irish Republican Army during the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921), and then, when the Irish constitution came into law in 1937, the tricolor was confirmed as the official flag of Ireland.
