If Ireland at some future date reunites, will the tricolour be an acceptable flag for the nation? As most readers of Broadsheet will know, the Irish national flag is not original in terms of design, rather it is a pastiche of the French tricolore. The supreme irony of the tricolour is that it was originally presented as a flag which was supposed to be representative of the two dominant and opposing traditions on this island.
I would like to ask Broadsheet readers the following questions:
Should Ireland persist with the Tricolour?
Should it be changed?
What are your thoughts on the Flag of the Four Provinces (above)?
Would it be a suitable alternative?
