SAINT PATRICK'S DAY SYMBOLS

A SHAMROCK  
                 

The shamrock is Ireland's national emblem because, according to the legend, St. Patrick used it to illustrate the Trinity. The idea that God is really three-in-one: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.




The Irish have considered shamrocks 
as good-luck symbols since earliest times, and today people of many other nationalities also believe they bring good luck.



                                      A LEPRECHAUN  

The name leprechaun comes from the old Irish word "luchorpan" which means "little body."

 A leprechaun is a male Irish fairy who looks like a small, old man about 60 cm tall. 

 He's got big ears and a long red beard. He always wears a green crooked hat and green clothes. 
According to the legend, leprechauns are reserved and unfriendly. They live alone, and pass the time making shoes. They are very rich and have a hidden pot of gold!

THE COLOUR GREEN

In Ireland, there is a lot of rain and mist, so the 'Emerald Isle' is really green all year-round. The beautiful green landscape was probably the inspiration for the national colour.

                                        THE HARP

The harp is an ancient musical instrument used in Ireland for centuries. It is also a symbol of Ireland. It appears on Irish coins, the presidential flag, uniforms and official documents.
