"I'm definitely going to carry the Irish flag, there's no doubt about it, that's what dreams are. That's what MY dreams are.... I know where I'm from and I'm going to go out there and represent my countrymen".

They are not flags, the are pieces of cloth resembling the flag. My flag flies above Aras An Uachtarain, Leinster House, Landsdowne Rd, Croke Park. My flag is not one that has been bought for €2 in a Carrolls gift store and brought to a press conference by some pissed up student.
I think you'll find that they are all pieces of fabric, the power with which you imbue them is your own creation and a narrative fed to us by groups in power. Nationalism by nature is also full of contradictions.
