To me one of the most interesting exhibits in the Museum is the actual flag that flew over the GPO during the Easter Rising, a green flag with the words Irish Republic on it; torn and burned with a corner missing it was
It was like an omen of what was to come.
According to a sign the Starry Plough flew ftom a hotel nearby, which flag ?
The blue one, the logo of the IRSP or the green one displayed on frontpage of Saoirse ( RSF paper ?

It’s a great point WR. Tricolours were also used rarely, an horizontal one used on the GPO iirc, or perhaps Boland Mills, and great question re starry plough.

The Starry Plough flown from the Imperial Hotel would have been the green one, with the very distinct plough- the blue flag with the stars is a later innovation I think.

Thanks Brian,
The Imperial Hotel as you know was owned by Williiam Martin Murphy, the arch enemy of the organised working class and it was he who called for Connolly’s death: “we must not weaken now” in Murphy’s paper, The Independant.Today that paper is as rabidly pro-capitalist and anti-socialist as it was in Connolly’s day.
A Belfast Artist William Megahy who lectured in the Art School in Kildare St.is generally credited with designing the Starry Plough
