    I didn't know that blue used to be the color associated with St. Patrick's Day.

          I've heard that red at a time was considered to mean go, rather than stop in the Soviet Union.

              I am wondering also about story behind sporting color of some country that has no relation with their flag's color.

              The common rule of sporting color describes their nationís flag, such as greenyellow for team soccer of Brazil, etc.

              Italy has blue for their sport attribute, Australia yellow , Netherlands orange, etc, while their flags have no color as such.

                The Netherlands flag was officially adopted on February 19, 1937.

                At one time this tricolor flag was orange, white and blue, as those were the livery colors of William of Orange, a Dutch prince. In the 17th century, red replaced the orange as a flag color, because the orange dye used on the flag was unstable, and turned red after exposure to the sun.
