Harp tattoos

Harp tattoos Harp Tattoos - The Harp has long been a symbol associated with Ireland and all things Irish and is a popular tattoo design, but many people are unfamiliar with the origins of the symbol. The 'Emerald Isle' flies a flag of green, representing the ancient Gaelic tradition. Against this background sits the gold Harp, a symbol with origins going back to Ireland's mythic past. This came to be known as the 'Green Flag'.

Dagda, the supreme god of Irish mythology, carried a Harp along with a cauldron and a club. The Harp, richly ornamented and made of oak, represented music and poetry. When Dagda played it, the seasons were sure to proceed in their correct order. Legend tells us that Dagda's harpist was once abducted by the enemy, and his harp silenced, left to collect dust, hanging on a wall. At the sound of Dagda's calling, the harp leapt back into his hands, and on the way it took out nine of the enemy, killing them on the spot. Clearly, the Irish Harp has many uses.

The emblem became synonymous with their cause, and later in the century was extensively used by Daniel O'Connell, the leader of the rebel campaigns. The emblem was also displayed during peaceful demonstrations for the repeal of the union with England. Its great popularity was seen by the English as seditious.

Insect tattoo symbols and designs Another Irish national flag - the green, white, and orange 'Tricolor' -- was flown by republican movements during the 19th century. Historians argue that the Green Flag remained the unofficial flag of the confederate Irish up until 1918. Both the Tricolour and the Green Flag were used by insurgents during the uprisings of 1916. When the republican separatists (Sinn Fein) won the general election in 1918, the Green Flag was designated a secondary role while the Tricolour became the national flag of Ireland.
