The design features four traditional emblems of Ireland, each with their own symbolism behind: the shamrock, the harp, the high cross and the Claddagh ring. The shamrock is a symbol for luck, the harp is a heraldic symbol of Ireland, the high cross represents the Christian faith and the Claddagh ring is a wedding symbol. The design was inspired by 9th century ancient Celtic manuscripts written by monks on calf skin or vellum. Celtic knots add depth and symbolism to it.
