A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. The name shamrock comes from Irish seamrg[amo], which is the diminutive of the Irish word for plant (seamair) and means simply "little plant" or "young plant".
Shamrock usually refers to either the species Trifolium dubium (lesser clover, Irish: seamair bhu) or Trifolium repens (white clover, Irish: seamair bhn). However, other three-leaved plantssuch as Medicago lupulina, Trifolium pratense, and Oxalis acetosellaare sometimes called shamrocks. The shamrock was traditionally used for its medicinal properties and was a popular motif in Victorian times.~ Wikipedia
