On March 17, we celebrate St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The anniversary, now widespread worldwide, has a dominant colour: green, the island’s symbol. GM’s new elevator models are perfect for honouring this festivity with an always refined and exclusive look.
March 17 is St. Patrick’s day, the day dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland. A recurrence now widespread all over the world, synonymous with joy and plenty of beer. This year we may not celebrate it as usual due to the pandemic, but this day’s joyful spirit remains. And it is reflected in its symbolic colour: green, like the island it represents, and like hope itself.
But who was the patron saint of Ireland? Patrick, born Maewyin Succat (Roman Britain, 385 – Saul, March 17 461), was an Irish bishop and missionary of Scottish origin. Many legends revolve around his figure. Among the many, the one that sees St. Patrick chasing all the snakes of Ireland into the sea. The episode dates back to 441, when the bishop spent 40 days and 40 nights on Mount Croagh Padraig. At the end of the fortieth day, he decided to throw a bell on a mountain slope, thus driving out all the island snakes.
Besides, he was the keeper of the famous St. Patrick’s Well, from which, after having seen the pains of Hell, one could access Purgatory and even glimpse Heaven.
St. Patrick’s Day has an international appeal today, awaited worldwide not only by the Irish community. And for the occasion, everything is tinged with green, the symbol of the island par excellence: a colour that expresses hope, joie de vivre and vitality.
