Saint Patrick's Day Symbols:

Shamrock:

  • Shamrock is the traditional icon of the day. This stems from a more bona fide Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity.

  • The shamrock was chosen Ireland's national emblem. He used shamrocks in his sermons to represent how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit could all exist as separate elements of the same entity.

  • His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day.

  • Today, people celebrate the day with parades, wearing of the green and drinking beer. St. Patrick's Day is celebrated just a few days before the first day of spring.

  • He is often dressed like a shoemaker with a crooked hat. Legend has it, that leprechauns stay aloof and unfriendly. They live alone, pass the time making shoes and have a hidden pot of gold.
