Catholics wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. Protestants wear orange.
A Catholic co-worker mentioned this to me a few years ago when I just happened to wear a bright orange t-shirt on St. Patrick’s Day. He called me a rebel or something. I’m Lutheran.
So now, I make a point of wearing orange on St. Patrick’s Day.
