Very original flags. What does the colors represent in these flags? I can't help seeing similarity with Vatican flag.

By the way, I'd like to present my indignation to some proposals I've seen recently that substitutes the orange color (considered "controversial") by the arms of House of Orange-Nassau (!!!), i.e. the arms of Kingdom of Netherlands (!!!), for no apparent reason except the canting.

Essentially, the blue and yellow colours just come from the flax flowers used as the charge (the flower has heraldic associations with Northern Ireland). If people want meaning beyond that, then the blue (depending on the shade) points to British and Scottish flags, St Patrick, Lough Neagh... The gold reminds us of the flag of Ulster (de Burgh arms), the flag of Ireland, etc. The hexagon motif comes from the stones of the Giant's Causeway and references the six counties.
