Flags of the Nations: Ireland


 The flag of Ireland is a tricolour of green, white, and orange where green represents the Gaelic tradition of Ireland, orange represents the followers of William of Orange in Ireland, and white represents the aspiration for peace between them.

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Ireland

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Ireland in 1987.

Ireland had a population of 5,068,050 in 2018. That same year, Ireland reported one organized Church of the Nazarene. Ireland has 51 total members.

Located on the Eurasia Region, Ireland is a Pioneer Area district. For more information about the Eurasia Region, visit eurasiaregion.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
