DID YOU KNOW
The word shamrock is derived from the Gaelic word Seamrog, meaning “little clover.” A clover is the commonly-used name for plants belonging to the genus Trifolium, meaning “having three leaves.” When depicting a traditional Irish shamrock, three leaves should be shown, as opposed to the uncommon, but lucky, four-leaf clover.
