    Default IRFU Flag

    With the Rugby World Cup only a few weeks away, I want to put up a flag outside my house in support of Ireland. As this is a 32-county team, and my very good neighbout next door is from Ballymena (hye!) I don't think the ROI tricolour is appropriate. Does anyone know where a man can get an IRFU flag? I think it's blue with shamrock on it...?

    The correct flag to fly is the Tricolour.

    It's a flag with the emblems of each of the 4 provinces on it. But you might as well just fly a tricolour if that's all you have. I'm sure your neighbour will understand.

    St. Pats flag. Get it on the internet for a few quid.

    This sort of PC nonsence never fails to surprise me. People afraid to fly the national flag for fear of offending the bloke next door.

    Put the tricolour up and let your neighbour f off. I hate this PC shite.

    That's for cricket. I think the tricolour is fully accepted as the fflag for rugby. I was delighted lately when I downloaded Brian Lara's cricket game for my phone and instead of that blue abomination, they used the tricolour as our flag. Take that ICC. :P

    That's our official flag for bowls by the way.

    Tricolour isn't accepted as the flag for rugby by IRFU protocol. You could use either



    Or you can often get this (The IRFU flag) in Elvery's with the colours reversed. That is a green flag with a white emblem.



    On international match day the IRFU four provinces flag flies alongside the tricolour at games played in the Republic of Ireland. However, the 4 provinces flag flies alongside the opposition flag as the flag of the actual teams playing. The Tricolour is the next in the line.
