A Visual Tribute to the Luck of the Irish in America

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

As a signage company, we are familiar with a lot of symbols and icons associated with various organizations, events, emotions, and even less tangible things like luck. As we look ahead to St. Patrick’s Day this year, we thought it would be fun to pay tribute to the Luck of the Irish in America, as creatively laid out in the following infographic by ExpertPromos.com. Aside from the obvious “lucky sign” that is the four-leaf clover, the infographic also mentions “snakes” as St. Patrick was once said to have stood on a hilltop with only a wooden staff by his side, and banished all of the snakes from Ireland. Another interesting fact is that the color blue was actually originally associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but over time green took over in popularity due to Ireland’s nickname as “The Emerald Isle,” the green in the Irish flag, and the clover used by St. Patrick in his teachings about Catholicism.

We hope you enjoyed this infographic as much as we did!
