It's only since the Irish Rebellion of 1798 that the color green has become associated with St. Patrick’s Day. Blue, which adorned the ancient Irish flag, was first identified with St. Patrick's Day. But the rebels wore green to differentiate themselves from the British, who clothed themselves in red, and the color has since come to denote Ireland and the Irish to all the world.
And, of course, shamrocks, the national plant of Ireland, add to the sea of green on March 17.
