If you want to be historically correct, you should Know that Blue is the color to wear on March 17th. The Irish Presidential standard is dark blue and gold. Dark blue and gold are considered the original colors of Ireland.
St. Patrick used to illustrate The Holy Trinity with a shamrock (a three leaved plant.) The wearing of the green originally referred to wearing a shamrock on one’s clothing. The change to green happened around the mid 1700’s inspired some say by Irish nationalism or loyalty to the Catholic faith, or the abundant green foliage associated with the beauty of Ireland.
The wonderful aspect of March 17th is that everyone is happy to join in the celebration. Being Irish is not a requirement. The willingness to have a good time is. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
