In Ireland's history, Protestant Irish wore orange cockades and Catholic Irish wore green cockades - until the Easter Rising in 1916 when the two colors were paired with white, a symbol of peace between the factions. For more history on Ireland's colors, CLICK HERE.

People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
