A teaching resource on the National Flag has been developed.

Tá forbairt déanta ar acmhainn teagaisc faoin mBratach Náisiúnta.

Did you know that our national flag – the tricolour of green, white and orange – was designed by US Army General Thomas Francis Meagher in 1848 and was first flown in Waterford?

The resource is aimed at primary and post-primary levels. The 1916 centenary year is a unique opportunity to discover the origin of our national emblem, why these colours were chosen and what they signify for us today.

To mark this special occasion, every primary and special school in the country will be presented with a specially made flag, delivered by members of our Defence Forces. Secondary schools will receive a flag at a special ceremony, in conjunction with the Thomas Meagher Foundation.

We have also developed a special online resource pack on the flag and our other national symbols which will be made available to schools. This resource is available here.

An raibh a fhios agat gurb é an Ginearál Thomas Francis Meagher as Arm na Stát Aontaithe a dhear ár mbratach náisiúnta in 1848 – an bhratach trí dhath glas, bán agus oráiste – agus gur cuireadh ar foluain den chéad uair í i bPort Láirge?

Tá an acmhainn dírithe ar an mbunleibhéal agus ar an iar-bhunleibhéal. Deis ar leith í an bhliain chomórtha céad bliain 1916 chun eolas a fháil ar bhunús ár suaitheantais náisiúnta, an fáth a roghnaíodh na dathanna sin agus cad a chiallaíonn siad dúinn sa lá atá inniu ann.

Chun an ócáid speisialta seo a cheiliúradh, tabharfar bratach shaindéanta speisialta do gach bunscoil sa tír, arna seachadadh ag baill d’Óglaigh na hÉireann. Gheobhaidh meánscoileanna bratach ag searmanas speisialta, i gcomhar le Fondúireacht Thomas Meagher.

D’fhorbraíomar freisin pacáiste acmhainní speisialta ar líne maidir leis an mbratach agus ár siombailí náisiúnta eile agus cuirfear ar fáil do scoileanna iad. Tá an acmhainn ar fáil anseo https://www.scoilnet.ie/ga/bratach-na-heireann/.
