Product Description

The "three crowns" was a common symbol throughout medieval Europe, connected with the story of the three wise men/kings in the New Testament Gospel of St Matthew. It was a symbol of the English lordship of Ireland until replaced by the harp during the reign of Henry VIII.David Prothero, 28 November 1999 When I was in college a roommate had a book-length commentary on James Joyce's?├┐Ulysses?├┐containing a brief traditional history of Ireland, recounting five waves of invaders. One of these is supposed to have come from Scythia under the leadership of Miled, or Milesius, and his eight sons, of whom five died in the conquest of the island, and the surviving three shared the kingship. There is a reference in the novel to "the oldest flag that ever sailed the sea, three crowns on a field of blue, for the three sons of Milesius." John Ayer, 30 November 1999 via CRW Flags
