So the English have no business flying the flag of St George on St George's Day? The Scots have no business flying the Saltire on St Andrew's Day? The Welsh have no business flying their national flag on St David's Day?

Different scenario. The flag of Scotland and England are their saints flag. So ok, technically if you’re for flying a flag on St Patrick’s Day, it should be the one below, and not a tricolour.

It’s the celebration of a saint, not a national holiday.

US Independence Day. Americans flying the US flag, that’s understandable.

Wasn't that red x concocted by the Brits so it would fit neatly onto the Union Jack?

I read something somewhere about that too.

I wonder did any one have a flag at the Armagh St Patricks Day parade TODAY?  The 16th of March. Unionist Dominated Council objected to it being held on Sunday. Fly your flag if you want.

On December 6th, 1921.
At least that's when the Irish Free State was established.The Free State didn't officially become a republic until 8 December 1949.
And if you are having a really slow day, you might be interested to know that there's a helluva difference between the "Republic of Ireland" and the "Irish Republic."
The latter was what the Shinners used when they declared independence from Britain after the 1918 elections.

Why not have Independence Day in December then? And leave St Patrick’s Day as it should be, a saints day.

Just for note I understand than the parade on 16th in Armagh was very poorly attended - I went to Cross to watch Armagh play. Sunday's parade led with flags from all over the world. It probably attracted the biggest attendance in years. In their parade highlights show on Sunday UTV showed the Saturday parade.

Thus making your suggestion of having an Independence Day all the stranger.

India celebrate their independence, even though they were partitioned.

India was partitioned from Pakistan (East and West), not northern India... d'oh!  :P :)
