It is generally considered that green represents the Catholic/nationalist/republican communities, orange represents the Protestant/unionist/loyalist community, and the white stands for the hope for peace and unity between them. The Irish Constitution does not give the colours any significance.

It can be done if someone is an important Irish person, such as a political leader. It could be done if the person was a soldier or a member of the police. It could be done if they had some other significance to Ireland.

What does green on the Ireland flag represent?

User Avatar
The Green stripe the nationalist tradition, the Orange represents unionists and the white stripe symbolizes the peace between them. The orange colour is associated with the Protestants in Ulster and those that derived from William III who defeated the Irish Catholics at the Battle of the Boyne in the late 1600s. It was included in the Irish flag in an attempt to reconcile the Protestants with the Irish independence movement. While it may not represent anything officially according to the constitution of the country, it is sometimes said that the green represents the Gaelic tradition of Ireland.

I heard it was first used in the 1840s during the Young Irelanders rebellions. I am open to correction on that though
