Evidence poor on official tricolour
Published 25/03/2010 | 05:00
There are major anomalies regarding the sale and resale of original 1916 tricolours regarding authentication, especially regarding the GPO in Dublin.
The recent attempted auction of an alleged GPO/1916 rising flag was rightly disputed (Irish Independent, March 24).
The original revolutionary flag was not even a tricolour. Photographs from the period clearly show a one-third green flag with the other two-thirds white.
