Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you’re Irish or not, there are many of us who love to don green attire and celebrate the patron saint of Ireland on his death date, March 17. Originally, blue was the color of St. Patrick’s Day, but that changed in the 17th century and green became the holiday color. This made more sense, considering the color’s strong ties to the Irish culture.
Green is a color on Ireland’s flag, along with white and orange. The green color represents the Catholics, the orange color represents the Protestants, and the white section in the middle of the flag embodies peace between the two sects.
“The Emerald Isle”
Ireland is so fondly considered the “Emerald Isle” thanks to its rolling green hills and lush, green landscape.
St. Patrick’s Day is just a few days before the first day of Spring (March 20), when the weather warms up and the greenery begins to flourish again.
It is said that the shamrock was used by St. Patrick to help explain the Holy Trinity. Each leaf represented the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And, coincidentally, shamrocks are green as well.
