The emblem of The United Irishmen, a political faction determined to expelled British influence from Ireland, raised this Flag at the start of The Rebellion of 1798. The Flag consisted of a Green Field in it's entirety. Centered, wad a Gold Harp with a Standing image of Liberty to the front. Above The Harp, was "The Liberty Cap" (another symbol of then Irish resistance and The United Irishmen). A Banneroll was placed at the bottom of the above images with the phrase "Erin Go Bragh" ("Ireland Forever"). The Liberty Cap Flag last flew on the field if The Battle of Vinegar Hill (1798). Briefly resurrected for The Rebellion of 1916, it us still seen as an enduring symbol of Ireland's opposition to British rule.
