Wrong. Germany was unified under Bismark. He unified the Kingdoms of Prussia, Hanover/Saxony and Bavaria.

The biggest kingdom was Prussia, whose flag was white with black borders on the top and bottom and a crest containing yellow and red. These are the colours of the first strip.

The second biggest kingdom was Hanover/Saxony.

The flag of saxony is green and white with a crest. These are the colours of the old second strip.

I am Irish and wish the urban legend were true but it has nothing to do with Ireland.
