Shamrock Drop Earring - small CE1072

The druids in Ireland looked at the shamrock as a sacred plant because its leaves formed a triad. Three was a mystical number in the Celtic religion.

The shamrock was used to represent the Trinity by St. Patrick. By doing this he could show people how the church was connected. St. Patrick used this to symbolize how The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit can be separate but also part of the same entity. But this is only a myth, as it is not supported in any factual literature in Ireland.

The shamrock was a sign of rebellion of the Irish from the English. Anyone seen wearing one were to hanged.

The shamrock is used in Irish pubs around the world. It is a sign of an English speaking, warm establishment.

 

Wapen van Ierland

Celtic Harp Jewelry-On Sale!

De har p, goud met zilveren snaren op een azuurblauwe achtergrond, wordt ook gebruikt als het politieke symbool voor Ierland. Het werd gebruikt om Ierland te symboliseren in de koninklijke standaard van koning Jacobus I van Schotland, Engeland en Ierland in 1603 en wordt sindsdien gebruikt op alle Engelse, Britse en gerelateerde koninklijke standaarden, alhoewel de stijl van de harp nog wel eens veranderde.

Het onafhankelijke Ierland bleef de harp als staatssymbool gebruiken (Great Seal of the Irish Free State en Great Seal of Ireland), en het wordt gebruikt in het wapen van het land, en op de Presidentiële Standaard. Het bekende Ierse bier Guinness gebruikt ook een harp in het logo van het bedrijf, maar in spiegelbeeld, en er wordt ook een bier gebrouwen dat Harp heet. De harp staat ook afgebeeld op de Ierse euromunten.
