Primary school children around the city and county of Waterford are invited to design a flag for the Ireland of today as part of the 175th anniversary celebrations. The Irish tricolour was first flown at 33 The Mall on 7th March 1848. The tricolour symbolises peace and harmony on the island of Ireland. It was designed at a time of great unrest and transformation on the island and became the proud National symbol of Ireland with the 1937 Constitution.
