The Shamrock Is Always Celebrated In Ireland
Shamrocks are important on more than just St. Patrick's Day in Ireland, and in fact, they are celebrated every day in that country because it is their national flower and emblem. People have been associating shamrocks with Ireland for centuries, but in 1985, it became the official Irish emblem.

In 1986, the Irish authorities decided to trademark the shamrock, and that is when the plant officially became registered as an Irish emblem. Since the 1800s, the shamrock plant has been the basis for famous ballads, pieces of art, songs, and poems, and continues to serve as inspiration today.
