As I was displaying our flags today (US, Washington, Navy, Scotland - Rampant Lion) . . .

 

10430899_263598290501477_461851258875093

 

. . . I wondered - is there an IIRA flag? Has anyone ever done one? Is there enough interest to have one made? Just curious.

 

And yes - the Navy flag looks backwards because of it's construction - I need to find a better one that reads the same on both sides.

Nice display.

 

I don't know if there's an IIRA flag but I would be interested in one too. I could put it next to my IRA flag..... :grin:

Benjamin Franklin, the Iroquois

and the Rationale for the

American Revolution

'John Rutledge, a delegate from South Carolina to the Constitutional Convention, is another of the Founding Fathers thought to be influenced by Iroquois thinking. Rutledge was in charge of the Committee of Detail at the Convention, and it is reported that he opened proceedings of that committee by reading a quote attributed to an Iroquois chief from 1520: "We, the people, to form a union, to establish peace, equity and order...".'

The Iroquois Confederation is the oldest

existing association of its kind in North America.

 

In 1744, Canasatego, leader of the Onondaga nation and spokesman for the Iroquois Confederation, advised the British colonists:

". . . We heartily recommend Union and a Good Agreement between you our Brethren. Our wise Forefathers established Union and Amity between the Five Nations; this has made us formidable, this has given us great weight and Authority with our Neighboring Nations. We are a Powerfull confederacy, and by your observing the same Methods our wise Forefathers have taken, you will acquire fresh Strength and Power."

not related to the American Revolution, but something Irish people know and appreciate.

I drug Buckshot to his first IRIP in 2010. He got up every morning, walked down to the marina with his pipes and serenaded the fish. Ron Wilming threatened to pull out his Glock and blow his head off!!

I have a smaller one. It has the IIRA logo and the overall color of the flag is tan (like the patch). I hadn't ever seen the black flag version.

There should be a picture of the bigger one in some photos of the 2006 IRIP. Our group (Colorado) had it hanging over the balcony ledge for display.

Well you Scots have your Bag Pipes - but the Irish improved it so they could smoke while playing.. the result, the Uilleann Pipes.

 

For about the first minute and half these guys are just screwing around, but the rest is worth a listen if you like this sort of music.

 

Some say the Uilleann Pipes sounds like someone is killing a cat.. It's a great instrument to listen to in a pub in some small town in Ireland though.

 

Here's another nice one.
