County Armagh sits between counties Down and Monaghan on the southern edge of Ulster. The name Armagh, or ‘Ard Mhacha’, originates from ‘Macha’—an ancient Irish mythological goddess. Macha was said to have been one of the three ‘Mórrígan’, a trio of great phantom queens, who were known to take the form of a crow. While in crow form she would incite warriors to battle, encourage acts of bravery and help ignite victory over enemies by predicting their doom. As a goddess of battle she was often seen surrounded by fire. Post pagan times, numerous others ‘Macha’s’ appeared throughout history. They were all linked by a deep relationship with the darker sides of life; death, fire, floods and even banshees. This flag captures a fire surrounded crow, launching into battle.
