| shamrock

In case you are sick of Mandarin, I’ve got good news for you: I’m going to write here about some other symbols as well. Let’s start with .

Shamrock (pronounced /ʃæmrɒk/ 🔊) is the trefoil leaf of a clover, especially Trifolium repens, commonly used as a symbol of Ireland. According to the legend, St. Patrick have used the shamrock to explain the idea of the Holy Trinity to the Irish.

The word is derived from Irish seamróg, diminutive of semar ‎(“clover”).
