GUEST,Neil Comer BS: Irish Flag Colors (50) RE: BS: Irish Flag Colors 07 Oct 02


I am going to get boring now. I attended a lecture some time ago by prominent folklorist Daithí Ó hÓgáin. He claims that the 'green' is not the original Irish colour at all, but that it came from a heraldic blue, which when mixed with the Orange, became Green. If this is true, then the Irish Tricolour contains one part blue, one part white and TWO parts orange ( Oh, my god!)
