In New Orleans on St. Patrick's Day - Cabbages, carrots and potatoes are traditional for St. Patrick's parade since the Irish's most known meal is corned beef and cabbage, which includes potatoes (an Irish national vegetable) and the carrots for color.

 CORRECTION ----------------------------------------

The Green--Cabbage---represents the Catholics
The Orange--Carrots--represents the Protestants
The White--Potato---represents Unity

Just like the flag.


CORRECTION ----------------------------------------

I'm Irish - and have never known Corned Beef to be an Irish dish. Bacon & Cabbage -
Yes, but Corned Beef - NO.

Also, how about

GREEN - THE LAND
WHITE - THE PEOPLE
GOLD - THEIR HEARTS

Man has three friends on whose company he relies.

  • First, wealth which goes with him only while good fortune lasts.
  • Second, his relatives; they go only as far as the grave, leave him there.
  • The third friend, his good deeds, go with him beyond the grave.
