County Antrim or ‘Aontroim’ means ‘lone ridge’ and is home to the bustling and historic city of Belfast, the second largest city in Ireland. Well, to be more precise, it’s home to most of Belfast, as some of it crosses the border into County Down. Antrim is also famed for its UNESCO heritage site—the Giant’s Causeway. The Giant’s Causeway is undoubtedly one of the most unique places on Earth, with some forty thousand geometric interlocking basalt columns jutting out to sea, caused by an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. The hexagonal and pentagonal columns make this otherworldly site look almost man made, rather than the naturally occurring phenomenon they are. This flag captures a pentagon on a rich saffron plain.
