52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - St Patrick's Blue

Today's colour is not an Irish green.  No, it is St Patrick's Blue which was originally the colour of Ireland according to the UK Telegraph Paper:

"Blue not green is the colour originally associated with St Patrick. “St Patrick’s Blue” is used on Ireland's Presidential Standard or flag, while the Irish Guards sport a plume of St Patrick’s blue in their bearskins. The emphasis on green is thought to be linked to “wearing the Green”, a symbol from the 18th century on, of sympathy with Irish independence."


So there ya go.  Fashion AND a history lesson.  This blog is educational!
