March Challenge – The Color Green
The color Green has always been associated as the color of Ireland. In reality, Ireland’s National color has always been Blue, dating back to 1542 when Ireland was changed into a Kingdom under the rule of King Henry VIII.
Determined to separate Ireland from its rule under the Pope and Catholicism, King Henry declared Ireland as a separate Kingdom. Centuries later, King George decided to bring Ireland back to its previous rule and revive the “Kingdom of Ireland”.
Often referred to as the ‘Emerald Isle’, due to Ireland’s rural fields of rich “green” landscape; making the color “Green” was seen as a natural way of illustrating Ireland and its Irish roots.
Another symbol of Ireland’s Heritage is it’s Aran Stitched “Irish Knit Sweater”. My little model “Cossette”, is a perfect representation of Ireland’s Green Heritage.
