There has been debate over the years as to the correct way to fly the Erne Flag. Some argue “Green to the ground and blue to the sky”. However the accepted way is for the green stripe to be on top representing the land and the blue on the bottom representing the water. As the source of the Erne is in the Republic of Ireland with the main loughs in Northern Ireland, a more cynical interpretation is that the flag was designed to not offend anybody in that it is neither green/white/orange or red/white/blue!!! This flag is constructed of woven polyester and is approximately 12″ x 18″. Its designed to be flown green uppermost but you can fly it the other way if you wish ! It can be flown from the stern of a boat or used as a burgee and flown from the mast.
