The green represents the Gaelic tradition of Ireland and the orange represents the followers of William of Orange in Ireland, with white representing peace, or a truce, between them.
GMC Flags of the Nations: Ireland
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
Global Ministry Center
Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Ireland

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Ireland in 1987.

Ireland had a population of 4,775,982 in 2013. That same year, Ireland reported one Church of the Nazarene that had been officially organized. Ireland has 93 total members.

Ireland is a Pioneer Area district on the Eurasia Region.
