The St Patrick tartan is a predominantly green and blue tartan with white and yellow. First of all, St. Patrick wasn’t Irish! He was born in the British Isles near the modern city of Dumbarton, located in Scotland around 373 C. E. His orginal name was Maewyn Succat, and only became Patrick after he was ordained as a priest. When Patrick was 16, he was seized by raiders from his homeland and brought to Ireland and sold as a slave. In captivity for six years, he heard God’s voice telling him the time was right to escape. In later years, after his escape, he would again hear God’s calling to return to Ireland and convert the Irish to Christianity. St. Patrick is attributed to Ireland’s conversion to Christianity. It is celebrated on his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century.
This is an Irish Tartan.
