Since the 17th century, the color green has been used to represent:
- A tribute to Ireland's nickname 'The Emerald Isle'
- One of the 3 colors of the Irish flag
- Green shamrocks, which were used by St. Patrick during his religious teachings to symbolize the Holy Trinity
Another reason to wear green? Leprechauns!
Legend has it they will pinch anyone not wearing their favorite color. That's reason enough for us!
