Shamrock Flags Jackets

Shamrock Flags on Jackets

Shamrock Flags are a fun way to share your heritages.

You can see all the Shamrock Flag designs by Auntie Shoe by visiting zazzle.com/ShamrockFlags

The Shamrock Flag design was created by Auntie Shoe to help those with more than one ancestry celebrate everyone at once.

St. Patrick, the Trinity, and Shamrock Flags

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.

Your Choices

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.

More About the Shamrock Flags

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!

Contacting the Designer

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?

The collection at the top of this posting shows about 15 or so different shamrock flags designs, but all are featured on a white jacket, with each shamrock having its own. The link to the collection is here.

Today, a horrible thing happened in my country. Someone set off a bomb and killed two people (as of this blog posting) and injured countless others.

Everyday, I must work. We all must. But my heart, today, is not in it. I have tears in my eyes and I only want to scream at the evil people who think they can get their way or make a point by taking someone else’s life or injuring an innocent child.

I do not want to speculate on who or what (truly “what” is the more applicable term) would do such a thing. Early reports on these types of things are seldom accurate, and I do not wish to spread rumors that may make a bad situation worse.

But work I must, even if I cannot find it in my heart to create a new image for sale or write a tweet or blog about something else. So, today, we will just look at designs I created that use the USA flag and make me feel that I can honor the innocent in some way.

Today’s blog post is dedicated to those that were injured or killed in Boston. Please pray for them.

Yes, you can buy these designs. Just click on the image and it will take you to the product.

This design is only available at ameriwear.flagnation.com or www.zazzle.com/flagnation/gifts?cg=196981339879944345.

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!

To purchase, click on the picture below.


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.

Last, we show a terrific tie with a French shamrock. Wonderful to honor all your ancestries (or three of them anyway) on St. Patrick’s Day or anytime. Fun for Bastille Day and 4th of July, too!

Happy Shopping!

Inauguration Day

This site does not usually get political. But, today is Inauguration Day, and in recognition of that, I decided to post this design which has the “USA Red LOVE” design on a decal of President Barack Obama. Few of my designs in this shop use the Obama decal because it doesn’t make sense to do so on most of the designs. But I liked the way this looked, so, it is there.

Since today is also the official celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I would like to feature this binder with a picture of an angel of color dressed in the USA flag.

And, because many people wish to make MLK Day one of service to others, I will post some designs that honor our service people, both military and first responders.

Blue lettering here made to look like clouds in the sky.

Honor the emergency medical technicians!

Blue lettering for Navy design looks a bit like waves in the water.


Love your cop, too!

Firefighters need love, too.

And the last one, just because I like it and it fits today’s topic, a house decorated with stars and stripes reading, “God Bless America My Home, Sweet Home”.

Yes, I know, lots to see today. That’s what happens on special days!

Hot New USA LOVE Design

Perfect for President’s Day, Valentine’s Day or any patriotic holiday is this fantastic “LOVE” design. It shows the word “LOVE” in red letters, with a heart shaped flag of the United States for the “O”. Here we see several products, available at zaz.flagnation.com or zazzle.com/flagnation.

First up, we show the design on a wonderful Rickshaw courier bag. Lots of style and usefulness, too.

We follow this with a teapot, for no particular reason other than I like the teapot and want to blog about it. So, this is me blogging about the teapot with the USA LOVE design.

Plus, I think it would be cool to have a teapot like this in my house. Hope you do, too.

And, lastly, we show an apron, again for no other reason than I like it. But it does make a fun gift for your BBQ-ing gentleman or lady.

New LOVE Designs at print.flagnation.com

My shop at print.flagnation.com or printfection.com/flagnation, carries a color combination of a women’s black and red tee that, I believe is stunning. As far as I know, Printfection is the only POD that carries this, so I thought I would share a few with you today.

There is one baby’s item here, the rest are all for the ladies. And MAMA, you are gonna look HOT in your new stuff!

The blue lettered USA LOVE design doesn’t seem to look as great on the red and black t-shirt combos, so I chose a baby item to show it at its best.
