Shamrock Flags on Jackets

The Shamrock Flag design was created by Auntie Shoe to help those with more than one ancestry celebrate everyone at once.
It is based on the Trinity example giving by St. Patrick when he was converting the Irish to Christianity. What every Irish Catholic knows, is that St. Patrick used the shamrock plant to explain to the people of Ireland how there are three persons in one God. Each leaf, he explained, is one of the Persons. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Except, back then, he might have said “Holy Ghost”.)
Like St. Patrick, Auntie Shoe has used the shamrock motif to create the shamrock flags, of sorts. Each leaf in the shamrock flag has a flag in it. Because most of the designs are meant for Irish Americans who wish to honor a third heritage or ancestry, the majority of these images include flags for the United States of America, or USA, and the Republic of Ireland, or just plain Ireland. The third leaf changes, depending on the country.
There are about forty choices now. But more are added all the time. If the one you need is not available, use the ASK THIS DESIGNER link, on the Zazzle order page, to contact Auntie Shoe. Tell her what you are looking for, and she will do her best to make it so.
You can also customize or personalize any of the shamrock flags to make it extra special. Add a name, a year, an anniversary or birthday. Whatever makes it just the thing for you or the person you wish to give it to as a gift. The red arrow on the image below points to the button you need to use to start the customization process.
By the way, this jacket makes a lovely gift. They show here in the collection above in white, because that is what makes the shamrock flags look their very best. But, you can also get this lovely outerwear item in navy, black, red, and brown. There are two other colors shown for the jacket. One is called “asphalt” and the other is called “army”. They are very nice, they just do not have traditional names. Auntie Shoe can’t decide which one of the two she likes best. They are pretty cool colors. Or, “colours” if you are practically anywhere but the USA. (Thank you, Noah Webster!)
The non-white colors cost a bit more because of the process used to make the white parts in the design show well. It is well worth the additional cost to get the one that is right for you or the person receiving your gift.
Above you can see, as the caption reads, the top part of the order page. This is here to show you how to choose the jacket color for your shamrock flags design. The red arrow near the bottom points to the colors available. You just click on the color you like best and VOILA!
Earlier in this blog post, the writer, that would be me, your virtual Auntie Shoe, mentioned that there is a way to contact the designer on Zazzle. Now, what Zazzle does is put the link in light gray letters on a white background. Makes it nearly impossible to see. And, to top that off, it is in teeeeeeensy little bitsy letters. So, basically, unless you are 18 and have never worn glasses, it is invisible. That is, unless someone points it out to you.
Since your Auntie Shoe cannot be there beside your mobile device or computer to guide you, she has created a blurry screen shot to be sure that you are as confused as possible. No matter what she does, it comes out blurry. But, there is a BIG THICK RED LINE under the ASK THIS DESIGNER link. That, it is hoped, will help you locate it on the page you end up on when you order. Here it is, below.
The fun part about this design is that is can be used any time, just to share your heritages. But, it can also be used for specific holidays. It is, of course THE perfect thing for your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
But, it can also be worn to celebrate the 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, President’s Day and Veterans Day.
Now, add to those the special holidays that are celebrated in the ever changing country represented by the third leaf. If that be France, then Bastille Day is a cool day to wear this jacket.
If it be Canada, try Canada Day. But that one is a bit obvious. For Oxi Day (pronounced “oihee”), wear the Greek Shamrock to celebrate your Greek Irish American heritage.
For Koningsdag in the Netherlands, pair it with an orange scarf and be part of oranjegekte or “orange madness”. For Australia, Australia Day is the obvious choice, but also nice for ANZAC Day, Labour Day or Eight Hours Day. And this design just might be perfect for Harmony Day.
For Italian Irish Americans, the jacket with the Italian Irish American shamrock flag is just perfect for St. Joseph’s Day (March 19th) or Columbus Day. But if you also celebrate May Day and Liberation Day, why not wear it, then, too?
