St. Patrick’s Day Stuff

St. Patrick’s Day will soon be upon us, so I thought it would be fun to share a few more of the shamrock flag designs. They are great fun for family reunions, and just for celebrating your American, Irish and (insert other ethnic group here). These are all found at flagnation.com. All design are available on many, many products, so you can find just the right thing.

First up, we show the English Shamrock, with the flags of USA, Ireland and England. This is the one President Barack Obama would wear, as he is of both Irish and English heritage on his mother’s side. Although, he would probably prefer a tee shirt or tie instead of the lovely necklace below.

Next, we show playing cards for family fun. These show the Australian Shamrock for those whose Irish ancestors came to the USA via Down Under.

Again, to purchase click on the picture.

Third, for the USA’s neighbor to the north, Canada, we feature the…you guessed it, Canadian Shamrock. And, yes, it shows the Canadian, USA and Irish flags. So, whether your ancestors came from Ireland and went to Canada and then the USA, or vice-versa, this works for you.

Again, to purchase click on the picture below of the lovely candy jar.

Lastly, we see a T-shirt with our Japanese Shamrock, with flags of USA, Ireland and Japan. And, yes, you can buy it by clicking on the picture.

Italian Shamrock from Flagnation

Today we look at the Italian Shamrock and designs available at zazzle.com/flagnation . These particular ones all have a green background on the product, to make them just a little more fun. I love this design because you can celebrate three of your ancestries, heritages and cultures all at once. In each leaf of the shamrock is a flag. One for, of course, Ireland. Another for the USA, and one for Italy.

First up, we have a fun Rickshaw messenger bag with many Italian Shamrocks. To purchase it, click on the picture below.

Next we have a deck of cards. Yes, cards. Perfect for games when the family gets together, you can have many hours of pleasure playing your favorite card game.

To purchase, click on the picture below.

Last, we show an espresso cup. What is Italy without espresso? Have yours on St. Patrick’s Day, St. Joseph’s Day and the 4th of July!

Shamrock Flags

Because I love them, I started making shamrocks with a different flag in each leaf. The USA and Ireland are always in the design, but the third leaf changes with each country.

Why did I do this? Because while I am very proud to be an American, I also have Greek, French, Dutch, German, Scot, and, of course, Irish lineages. And in America this is not unusual. So, I created a design that allows people to honor three of their ancestries at once.

First up, we have a Greek shamrock espresso cup. Lovely for your Greek coffee, even if you choose to drink it on St. Patrick’s Day. Click on the picture to purchase it.

Shamrock Flags

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, I thought we could look at a few designs I created using the shamrock motif. These shamrocks all have three leaves, of course, and in each leaf is a different flag. Two of the countries are always the same, those being the United states and Ireland. the third country varies from shamrock to shamrock. Below are four examples.

This blog post is an experiment of sorts. I found a “helper thingy” for posting. It creates some of the code for me and makes it look nice, too. I thought I would try it and see how it works. So far, so good. The person who created the “helper thingy” also designs items and asks that if I use it, I promote one of their designs. This is easy because I can use the handy-dandy “helper thingy” for this, too. I chose this particular design because some people who enjoy my images like to travel and travelers often take pictures. They also need key chains to keep their keys on so they have them handy when they arrive to back at their own home, all worn out and needing to get back into said house.
