The design of the Irish flag was created by a group known as the Young Irelanders. While visiting Paris during "l' annee des barricades" they were inspired by the French tri-colour. The Irish tri-colour was first used at the Ballingarry Rising (Co. Tipperary) in 1848. The green colour represents the native Irish; the orange represents the orangemen (the colonists) and white symbolizes peace between the two communities.
