 There is a difference between a Shamrock and a Four-Leaf Clover.  A Shamrock is a young sprig, used as a national emblem of Ireland.  It has only three leaves and represents the Holy Trinity.  The Four-Leaf Clover is universally recognized, and the leaves represent hope, faith, love and the fourth leaf is for good luck.

 One of the most recognized “symbols” of Irish culture would be the Claddagh.  It is a heart enclosed by two hands with a crown above them symbolizing loyalty, friendship, and love.
