The flag of Ireland, also known as the tricolor flag, features 3 vertical stripes in green, white and orange. The green stripe is at the hoist end, white is in the center and orange is on the fly end. There are no other decorations or ornaments on the flag. The official history of the Irish flag declares that the colors of the Irish flag represent the Gaelic tradition of Ireland (green), the flowers of William of Orange (orange) and the aspiration for peace (white).
