The standard of the President of Ireland consists of a golden Cláirseach (Gaelic harp) with silver strings on a background of azure blue. The design is the same as the Coat of Arms of Ireland, and was based on the Trinity College Harp.
The standard is flown over Áras an Uachtaráin, the official presidential residence in Dublin. It is also flown at Dublin Castle when the President is in residence and on vehicles used by the President. As with other presidential and Royal Standards, it is never flown at half mast. The Presidential Standard never takes precedence over the flag of Ireland, whereas, for example, the Royal Standard takes precedence over the Flag of the United Kingdom.
