The Red Hand has long been a cultural symbol representing the Province of Ulster, in Northern Ireland.
As one legend of its origin has it … once upon a time, there was a king who had two sons.
In order to determine which of them would succeed their father and claim ownership to the throne, they agreed to a competition.
The competition would take place in the form of a boat race around an island … and back to shore.
The first of the sons to lay a hand on the shoreline would be declared the winner … and king-in-waiting!
The boats set-off on the race … and for the most part, remained ‘neck-and-neck’.
As they rounded the island, heading back to shore … one of the boats started to pull ahead.
Quickly approaching the finish line, the brother in the trailing vessel realized he was all but certain to lose.
Refusing to surrender … he grabbed his sword and in one powerful stroke, chopped off his own hand … and threw it (red and bloody) … onto the beach – guaranteeing his victory!
