Note on Irish Harp Symbol

Irish Harp Symbol on Euro coinOfficial Irish Harp Symbol

The shamrock is by far the most popular symbol of Ireland although the Irish harp is the official symbol of Ireland. It appears on all government documents and on Irish minted euro coins.

Ireland's most famous drink, GUINNESS® , also has the Irish harp on it. Apparently Arthur Guinness, Dublin's finest brewer, chose the Irish harp to appeal to Irish nationalism. It is one part of the Guinness trademark since 1862 (the other two parts are the Guinness word and Arthur Guinness' signature.)

When the Irish State was founded in 1922, in order to distinguish the Irish harp they chose from that associated with GUINNESS®, they turned the harp in the opposite direction!
