  • A green flag, Union flag to the upper left corner, centred by a gold Maid of Erin harp.
    There is evidence that the Green Ensign, although never officially approved, had been used by some Irish ships since the 17th Century. The early versions use the emblem of the Irish Revenue – a “Mermaid” Harp surmounted by a crown in gold. However the background should have been St. Patrick’s Blue rather than emerald green according to the authorities. In the 1830s The Western Yacht Club used the Green Ensign for a while. In some cases Irish vessels had this flag confiscated by authorities in harbours in Britain, Ireland and the West Indies according to some records. In 1872, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in reply to the Admiralty, declared the use of the Green Ensign to be incorrect, and in support attached a well researched paper by Sir J.
