March Challenge – The Color Green

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.

A few “Green” items featured from my Shops: MagdaleneKnits & MagdaleneJewels, as well as some lovely items from the Member’s of the BBA Team (Business Blogging Artisan Team).

    Pretty greens! My poor mom always had to wear orange on St. Patrick’s Day as a kid…in Boston! Orange is the color of Protestant Irish, and her family was adamant about not wearing green on St. Pat’s because that was for the Catholic Irish.

    Glad you liked my “pretty” green items to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Yes, I well know about the “Orangemen” (a term given to Anglican Irish. Good thing they didn’t have the bullying they have today when your mother went school. I can’t imagine! My grandmother was Irish Catholic and my grandfather was English Protestant – so I remember their many discussions on the subject!

    I love green in all variations! Such pretty finds. St. Patrick’s Day is not observed over here, but I love seeing all the shamrock decorations on social media 🙂

    Thank you Duni – St. Patrick’s has always been one of the most popular holiday’s here, esp in NY where so many first Irish Immigrants arrived at Ellis Island in the early 1900’s. So it has a lot of history here!
