Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Style Noters! Ever wondered why we associate St. Patrick’s Day with the color green? There are quite a few reasons, actually!

First and foremost, Ireland’s nickname is “The Emerald Isle.” The green in the flag and in the clover St. Patrick used in his teachings about Catholicism also played a big role as to why people wear green on this day. Some people still follow this tradition in Ireland. Catholics wear green and Protestants wear orange, representing the two colors in the flag while the white in the middle represents the peace between the two.
