Fun Irish Facts

Q. Do you know what the original color of St. Patrick’s Day was?

A. Originally the color associated with St. Patrick’s Day was blue.  It was the official color of the Order of St Patrick and was a sky blue called St. Patrick’s Blue

Q:  Why do people wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?

A:  One of the main reasons the green replaced blue was because of Ireland’s nickname – The Emerald Isle.  There is also a green stripe in the flag that also played a role and traditionally green represented the Catholics of Ireland.  St Patrick also used a green shamrock to teach people about the Holy Trinity.
