There are many different symbols that represent St Patrick’s Day. The most common symbol is the shamrock. Other symbols include:

  • The green, orange and white flag of the Republic of Ireland.
  • Brands of beer associated with Irish culture.
  • Religious symbols including snakes and serpents.
  • The harp, which was used in Ireland for centuries.
  • The leprechaun and a pot of gold that it hides.
