Four Leaf Clover - The Original Irish Shamrock
The true, original Irish Shamrock comes from the Irish word “seamrog”, meaning “little clover”. Not just any of the numerous varieties of clover, but one specific species – white clover or Trifolium repens. This is why the only true four-leaf clovers are from the white clover species. This was identified in 1893 by Nathaniel Colgan during a study of clovers collected from a majority of counties in Ireland.
Each leaf of the clover symbolizes a piece of tradition – one for Faith, one for Hope, and one for Love. The fourth is for Luck and is why a four-leaf clover is regarded as bringing good fortune.
White clover was held in high regards by the Celts of Wales as a charm against evil spirits, and Druids considered them a sign of luck. Four-leaf clovers are rare finds in fields as there are about 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf one. Ireland is believed to grow the most four-leaf clovers, explaining the tradition behind the phrase “Luck of the Irish”.
