- Seal of the President of Ireland
The Seal of the President of Ireland (Irish: Séala Uachtarán na hÉireann) is a seal used by the President of Ireland to be affixed to every "...order, commission, warrant, or other instrument..." which the president has witnessed. The seal remains in the custody of the current President or the Presidential Commission.
The official seal has the word "Éire" in Gaelic script, and uses the modified harp (from a 1928 design by Percy Metcalfe) that is used as the official state symbol on coins and documents of the Republic of Ireland. The design of the official seal was approved by the Executive Council of the Irish Free State on 15 September 1937. The official seal is similar to the design of the Great Seal of the Irish Free State which was itself under the custody of the Governor-General of the Irish Free State.
