The traditional and well-known arms of Ireland are Azure a harp or. They have been used by English monarchs to represent their claim to the island since the time of Henry VIII, who first used a harp on his Irish coinage. When the office of Ulster was created in 1552, his badge was the harp. Elizabeth I used a crowned harp as badge for Ireland in her second Great Seal of 1586, although her Irish coinage showed three harps. Finally, when, in 1603, a new achievement was designed on the occasion of the personal union of England and Scotland under James I, a quarter representing Ireland was added (Woodward, A Treatise on Heraldry, p. 383-4). The quarter is still in the arms of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, representing dominion over Ulster, or Northern Ireland (the “six counties”).
