Presidential Standard (Ireland)

The Presidential Standard of the President of Ireland, adopted in 1945, consists of a gold harp, (the coat of Arms of Ireland), on a St. Patrick's Blue background. The flag is flown over Áras an Uachtaráin, the presidential palace in Dublin, when the President is in residence. As with other presidential and royal standards, it is never flown at half mast.
