  1. David says:

    Not a Design Expert you wonder why the Irish design is doing so well – maybe because it is the best designed. It is a blend of tradition and modern. It contains the symbol of Ireland – the harp, and also a warrior holding a shield and a spear. You say that it is weak and that it reflects the nations military capability. Ireland is a neutral country. Its military are more interested in Peace keeping missions abroad. Ireland does not go to war because of some hidden agenda like the US / UK / Australia etc etc.

    Ireland has the best logo for how it looks and what it symbolizes….

  2. United32 says:

    The Irish have been happily waging war since 1798. It may not have been done through what is considered to be a legitimate defence force, but it has been doing it since then quite succesfully (i.e. the founding of the free state, good Friday agreement and so on). It’s latest reincarnation happens to be the P.I.R.A. The official defence force will forever be an insignifigant blip in comparison to a real army that influences the nation south and north of the border.

    Mark I would not consider Jadotville a surrender. They fought to the end, until both water and ammo was completely used up. Professionals trained in many bigger european armies were completely unable to dislogde them using force. Relief from others in the UN consisted of ignoring them or sending in air lifted water that was in uncleaned fuel drums, which was undrinkable. I am actually very proud of the service given in the Congo and Jadotville in particular. Despite the useless leadership given at a political in the UN level at the time. If all UN service was as selfless there would be far fewer prolems around the world today.

  4. eddie says:

    Mark- some army, you have no guns…

  5. Joseph Blabke says:

    United32. You’re factually incorrect. 1798 and all since has not been waging war. It was defending against those who chose to wage a war. It was defense against the would-be oppressors. Those involved did not invade a foreign land. That was the other side.

  6. brim4brim says:

    Yeah United32, the Irish army doesn’t wage war. When the Irish want to take over somewhere, we simply emigrate and outbreed the existing population until we are in control. The army has nothing to do with ti.

    Its a peaceful and much more fun way of taking over a country.

  7. eddie says:

    united- dont think there were too many non catholics in PIRA, they are more like the run on from the peep o day boys or the defenders than the United Irish men. Many of the main movers in 1798 were non sectarian and non catholic . PIRA had many short coming in that department. The rest of us might not be perfect, but I dont think following PIRAs example will get us any closer to be “united”. By the way the “offical” forces were the IRA in 1918 not PIRA which came much later from a split within a split and never had more than a samll minority of support. The legimacy of our forces comes from our own democracy not want anybody elses thinks of us…

  8. United 32 says:

    Hey brim4brim that’s hillarious and true. Very well pointed out. As regards to the coment by Joseph Blake, it is you Mr. Blake who is incorrect. Historically, the people ‘who chose to wage war against us’ as you describe them were in fact the legitimate government of Ireland. This was put in to statute through the crown of Ireland act 1542. As the vast majority of Gaelic chieftans accepted this anybody who fought against the legitimate government of the day (i.e. the crown) would be described as terrorists, using todays terminology. There was in FACT no war waged by the crown of England. War was however waged against the crown by anyone who chose to use violence or agression against it.

    Eddie, firstly I never made any reference to any particular religon of any of the organisations who have fought for the nation of Ireland. The fact that you make reference to this, shows that you are trying to distort my argument, which in fact makes very logical sense. As regards the P.I.R.A. and being united, this particular organisation has made more of an impression on this objective than any other organisation in Ireland. This includes Fianna Fail and our defence forces. Remember the Good Friday agreement is directly linked to the impression that the P.I.R.A. had on the government of Britain. Anybody who thinks differently is a fool. The I.R.A. of 1918 were not the official force of Ireland, they were a haphazard organisation fighting against the legitimate forces of the state, the Queen or King of England. The I.R.A. were the peoples army. It so happens that the official I.R.A. was superseeded by the P.I.R.A. therefore all legitimacy as the peoples army was surrendered to this new organisation. You can never make reference to how much support an illegal organistaion has as it is only speculation. This stands true for both the I.R.A. and the P.I.R.A.

    Finally in reference to the legitimacy of our forces coming from our democracy, the Irish constitution in article 3 states the fact that the Irish people want a nation of Ireland, in so many words, and therefore as part of this territory is occupied by an aggressor it calls in to question legitimacy and sovereignty and the right of any free state governement to appoint a ‘legitimate’ defence force.

  9. Gabh says:

    For those that said the irish logo isn’t the defence forces logo but the Department of Defence (yes you lord charlie), can they explain to me why the body and head of the warrior looks like an “i”. Why the third string of the harp and the shield, looks like a “D”. And why the spear and the hand holding it looks like an “f”? To me the logo clearly incorporates the letters “IDF”

  10. eddie says:

    United 32 – Your points have some truth, however the Volunteers in 1918 did place themselves under the service of the people after the all Ireland election of that year which gave their stated aim alot of credibility. During the troubles the provisionals never even had a majority of the nationalist vote in the 6 counties so it is safely to guess at their support levels. I believe this is because they were too agressive and destructive to the country at large and too willing to target civilians. Vocal criticism was not well recieved.
    As far as I am concerned the IRA were the offical force in 1918 because the Dail said they were and it was drawn from all parts of the Island in as much as circumstances at the time allowed that election to be.

    I am not suggesting that you were sectarian in your comments or are in fact so. But the lack of any imvolvement in your national organisation of such a large minority who were and are otherwise represented is a huge weakness. You propose build a new country for the people, but ignore their expressed wishes in vote after vote. People like me would be put against a wall by PIRA if they were running the country, because I stringly disagree. You scare too much to inspire.

    The fact that the British paid heed to PIRA does not make them morally right. No more than the treaty made the free state army legitimate. I am more worried what fellow Irish people think than foreigners and frankly PIRA is far more constructive and influential now without arms than any bomb ever made it.

    I believe anyone on the Island has an equal right to serve in the Army, however the disruption of that right does not allow others to set up new armies and claim they too are legitimate. Otherwise we end up in chaos. As I said originally the 26 county state is not perfect but its not that bad either and its good building block to work on. By your arguement RIRA, INLA, PIRA, the Defence Forces and CIRA all have equal rights to legitimacy regardless of who runs them or how answerable they are to who they claim to selve…

    C’mon Ireland!

    We do not have an offensive army but one that only does peace keeping.

    I like Ireland’s.

    Who knew so much work went into creating govt. dept logos?

  16. Howard says:

    Ireland’s logo is ridiculous. It looks like a guy in a wheelchair trying to climb a flagpole. Germany and Russia have much cooler logos.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Anyone else think the Saudi Arabia one looks more like an airliner logo?

  18. Craig says:

    I was able to recreate a few of these logos using a website http://www.freelogoservices.com They actually came out pretty good.

  19. andy says:

    Just to be clear: do not confuse the intentions of the civilian government with the performance of the service. In other words, don’t knock a country’s military just because the elected numbskulls send them to crazy missions. In defense of the American military, they trust and obey their civilian Congress and their civilian Commander in Chief. Baby and bathwater, etcetera.

  20. Carl Vincent says:

    Germany’s logo is the neatest because of history. Faught almost single handedly two world wars against the best of the best -so in a Pavlovian way it photographically creates a response. But in itself it’s not impressive.

    Russia’s logo says “IMPERIAL COSSACKS AND WAR DOGS APPRAOCHING” all over it. Makes you want to take your own life before they get here!

  22. A message of the representative of God


    Allah/ God/ Bhagwan/ Buddha bless you,

    I am a representative of God, giving you a clarion call that everything including human being belongs to God or Almighty Allah or Bhagwan or Buddha etc. All good activities are accounted for God and bad activities are accounted for the Satan, Devil, Rakshas, etc. Now being representative of God, Almighty Allah, Bhagwan etc. I have caught the Devil, Satan, Rakshas, etc. Kindly you are requested to contact me immediately so that I can deliver you the same.

    The Momineens, the believers of Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) of the world have decided to build gigantic and grandiose city presenting an edifice of humanity and tranquility, peace and love, supplication and consummation for the All-Forgiver and All-Merciful showering upon the people His bounties and blessings since the creation of first man on earth Adam (A.S.) and this Adam (A.S.), the first father of human being was firstly challenged by the Satan mardood that this creature of God shall be spoiling, devastating and rummaging through the planet earth.

    But, the Almighty Allah, the All-knower challenged the Satan mardood that he is not that kind of wise as Allah is so shall he be expelled from his court of blessing and forgiveness after having been defeated from the court of Allah. The Satan mardood decided to challenge the human being by making him/her more adaptable towards the bad deeds including the first murder on the planet earth to the developing of mass destruction weapons. So the man, so fragile and subtle becomes the escape-goat of the Satan mardood. Since the first murder of Adam’s son by his own brother and the continuity of the same is still on and on in the shape of making man enemy to man with no fear of God and disturb the whole peace and the tranquility on this planet earth by inventing fighter jets and B-2 bombers, suicide bombers and all other inhuman activities stretching from theft to murder.

    Now Almighty Allah/ God has decided to present Himself on planet earth by putting the ground breaking ceremony of the projected city of Qasar-e-Hussain located in Lahore, Pakistan, Earth Planet; which shall be the standing Exaltation of Allah in the form of Imam Hussain (A.S.) preaching place entailing hospitals, colleges, universities, airports, sky-scrappers, motorways, subways, seven star hotels and what not. All presenting the grandiosity, magnanimity and magnificence of Almighty Allah for his poors, dejected, desperate, destitute, forlorn and poverty stricken humans on the earth planet first time in the history of human beings and in this great cause The Design Constructions has joined hands with us to give this grand project a practical shape.

    Thus by throwing lights on the certain characteristics and the parameters of the new city on the earth planet shall be the embodiment of Allah’s Greatness and Vanity. Now by putting the pinnacle of Allah on the planet earth shall be the final nail in the coffin of Satan or Devil or Rakshas etc. From onwards no Satan or Devil shall ever be daring to disturb the echo system of God.

    Look at the concept, you all shall cooperate with us to build this magnificent piece of Allah’s Architect on the Planet Earth. Undoubtedly Allah is the best Architect in the universe. Now we say that the Satan or Devil is doing his level best to finish this grand project of Allah as soon as possible so all the people, the figure is 5 billion plus, are once again challenged by the Devil, so we request all of the human beings irrespective of their religions, beliefs, sects, tribes, colors, sex and creeds to come forward and marshel together as an army of loveable and adorable people of Earth Planet to give a blowing defeat to the army of the Satan or Devil. This exemplary innihilation of the Satan mardood shall be another living example like Pharaoh, who also challenged God one times through his sky-high pyramids, so this is the Wrath and Exuberance of Almighty Allah on the inhabitants of the Earth Planet.

    After having this brief introduction every peace loving human is invited to contribute his/her means of resources of whatever nature for the preservation and restoration of the poverty stricken, socially and economically crippled, highly unsecured, and also in the presence of human bombs, nuclear bombs and heavy armaments of any kind with no fear of Wrath of God. Initially this project is being started with thousands of kanals (1 Marla=225 sq. yards, 1 kanal=20 marlas), and shall be extended to millions of kanals because every thing belongs to Allah including Earth Planet

    So if we say this projected grand city is a peaceful shelter/ home for all the peace loving human beings on the Earth Planet shall not be a wrong concept by the representative of Allah. So come on it’s a clarion call to all NGO’s, Governments and all other institutions which are preaching and practicing for the peace and tranquility of this Planet Earth are once again called upon to join hand to hand with this representative of Allah to make this Planet Earth more peaceful and beautiful by harnessing and clogging the Satan or Devil.

    Now we let you know the people of earth planet that deweaponization is desatanization, denuclearization is de-devilization, antitheftism is antisatanism, likewise entailing the success of good qualities and failure of all the Satanic/ Devilish characteristics from the Planet Earth, also save from the volleys of terrorism, deglobalization, hunger, poverty, injustice and inequality to make this earth more peaceful and tranquil to live on this planet. So we conclude that the emancipation of all the human beings is based upon the harnessing and catching of the Satan or Devil.

    Thanking you,

    Representative of Allah

  23. A message of the representative of God

    In The Name of Allah The Beneficent, the Merciful

    Allah/ God/ Bhagwan/ Buddha bless you,

    For the perpetuity, susceptibility and maintainability of earth planet and to wash away the long long irreparable and impregnable damages or losses to the planet earth every man living on the earth planet is wishing and desiring very conscientiously that why he has been predestined to the unforeseen worries of suicide bombing, nuclear threats, disrespect to humanity, dishonesty, adulteration, bribery, and what not vices carried out by the Devil, Satan etc., on the earth planet. Shall it be possible for the human being who been very weak and fragile ever be in the position to clear himself alone from the mess of vices spreading around this earth planet. It is not possible individually but commonly possible, then who would dare to lead the army of humans who are desirous of peace and tranquility on this planet earth, definitely, anyone of you can do it. Living on this planet earth it could be the President of America, Mr.George W. Bush, or the President of any country of the world including the President of Pakistan, Mr. Pervaiz Musharraf. Also, any individual living in slum area or any individual living in the skyscraper or living in the most beautiful palace on this earth planet since its creation.

    Now you have to decide since you are the master of your destiny either you decide to go with the Army of Humanity and Tranquility i.e Allah, God, Baghwan, Buddha etc. or the army of the gun totters, nuclear mounted launchers or so much so the suicide bombers or violent persons living on this earth planet . Moreover, I have put the ball into your court to get an answer from your conscience of whatsoever nature and; therefore, kindly intimate me through the same mail and the contact numbers given on the website. If answer is yes then fine, and if not then I shall pray to Allah, God, Baghwan, Buddha, etc. to come on this planet earth and assist us. I would rather pray to Allah, God, Baghwan, Buddha, etc. or whatsoever to whom you worship to come down and fight with the Satanic or Devilish forces who are ruling upon the brains of the five billion plus people living on this earth planet and give crushing defeat to the enemies of peace, humanity, and tranquility on this land of destitutes, poors, poverty-stricken subjects, forlorns, etc.

    So, this is the challenge I give to all the Evil Forces living on the earth planet to fight with the Powers of Allah, God, etc. and that would subjugate and rope their unbridled horses which are busy in trampling the peace and tranquility of the planet earth. Thus, there is an open announcement of Armageddon between the forces of Allah, God, etc. and the forces of the Satan, Devil etc. The result of this grand some Battle will show whether this representative of Allah is right or wrong.

    By the Grace of my All-Mighty Allah, the Army of Allah, God, etc. will give a mind shattering and mind boggling defeat and humiliating retreat to the army of the evil forces led by the Satan, Devil, etc. They will not even get a small space for their refugee on this earth planet, which is made for peace and love. Since every human being is a peace loving and desiring for peace and tranquility including all the governments of the world on this earth planet.

    Thanking you,

    Representative of Allah

  26. medyum says:

    How dare you Paul R! I am a proud member of the Irish Defence Forces, I have served in Lebanon and Bosnia under UN Peacekeeping operations and I completely reject your claims that the Irish Military should be disbanded. Its madness! Ireland’s military hasn’t been as strong since the Civil War. Ireland’s military is a beacon of humanity in a world of evil. Ireland’s troops are deployed across the world under the UN protecting the innocent and rebuilding the lives of those effected by confict. The Irish Military is a force of peace and has never engaged in acts of aggression, a model force commited to protecting the defenceless where ever they may be. So vote Ireland! IRELAND’S MILITARY IS A FORCE OF GOOD AND PEACE, ARE ICON IS THE COOLEST, SYMBOLISES OUR HERITAGE AND IS THE MOST INNOVATIVE SO… VOTE IRELAND!!!!
