The Tricolor Flag of Ireland

Ireland’s current flag consists of three colors: white, orange, and green. This flag was created in 1848 by Thomas Francis Meagher, an Irish nationalist and revolutionary who battled for his country’s freedom from the British. According to him, the white in the flag’s center depicts peace between the Irish people (represented by the green hue) and English followers of William III of England, also known as “William Henry of Orange.”
