The Orange and the Green

Totally different colors, yet beautifully complementary.

The colors of the flag or Ireland are orange and green with white in the middle, representing the traditional Gaelic older majority and the Protestant, minority followers of William of Orange and the truce between the two.

I’m hoping that the reds and blues in our country can remember that our flag is red, white and blue and come together after this contentious election and pursue freedom, liberty, justice and the American way of life without hatred or violence.
