Design A Flag Competition for Children – Thomas Francis Meagher Tricolour Celebrations

CompetitionsThomas Francis Meagher Tricolour CelebrationComments Off on Design A Flag Competition for Children – Thomas Francis Meagher Tricolour Celebrations

As part of this year’s Thomas Francis Meagher Tricolour Celebration, children around the city and county of Waterford are invited to design a flag for the Ireland of today as part of the 175th anniversary celebrations.

The Irish tricolour was first flown at 33 The Mall on 7th March 1848. The tricolour symbolises peace and harmony on the island of Ireland. It was designed at a time of great unrest and transformation on the island and became the proud National symbol of Ireland with the 1937 Constitution.

“The white in the centre signifies a lasting truce between the ‘Orange’ and the ‘Green’, and I trust that beneath it’s folds, the hands of the Irish Protestant and the Irish Catholic maybe clasped in generous and heroic brotherhood”. – Thomas Francis Meagher
