The Shamrock is Ireland's most celebrated emblem. Its association dates to the 5th century when, legend suggests, St. Patrick used it  to demonstrate the meaning of the Holy Trinity while converting the people of Ireland to Christianity The plant itself was reputed to have mystical powers-the leaves standing upright to warn of an approaching storm.
