    Green, white and ....

    <DIV>Orange????[img]smileys/mad.gif[/img]</DIV>
    <DIV>Maybe i'm particularly cranky this morning, and coming into an office crammed with s**tty plastic Paddy's Day decorations has really irritated me. But the colours of National Flag are green, white and GOLD. I've never seen a flag on sale in Ireland that is gold instead of orange and this always annoys me? What's the deal? Is orange cheaper to produce? Do most people not even release they don't actually have an Ireland flag?</DIV>

                The national flag of Ireland is a tricolour of green, white and orange. The flag is twice as wide as it is high. The three colours are of equal size and the green goes next to the flagstaff.


                The flag was first introduced by Thomas Francis Meagher in 1848 who based it on French tricolour.


                The green represents the older Gaelic tradition while the orange represents the supporters of William of Orange. The white in the centre signifies a lasting truce between the 'Orange' and the 'Green'.


                It was not until the Rising of 1916, when it was raised above the General Post Office in Dublin, that the tricolour came to be regarded as the national flag.


                It is now enshrined in the Constitution of Ireland.</DIV>

                  <DIV>Why on earth did i think it was supposed to be gold then? I'm genuinely confused as to how i was lead to believe that. (apart from the fact that I'm an idiot of course)</DIV>
