Interesting Facts, courtesy of Nancy:The crouching start used by sprinters was first
introduced in the USA by MICHAEL MURPHY, son of Irish immigrants in 1887!! The 12
stars: Arsene Heitz (1908-1989) The Frenchman who designed the European flag admitted
30 years later that he got the idea for the 12 stars from the Miraculous Medal (which
was given to Catherine Labore by The Blessed Virgin in 1830). The flag was officially
unfurled on Dec.8th 1955 - the feast of the Immaculous Conception! There are 12 Dublins
in the USA and six in Australia!
