This is the Union 1st Reg. Irish Brigade Flag. It contains a harp, clovers, and a sun with clouds, all of which are popular Irish symbols. On top are the words 1st Reg Irish Brigade, signifying what it is.
The Irish brigade flag and Irish brigade regiment flags generally share a very common design that includes an Irish green or kelly green background. Many Irish battle flags also feature a white cloud with a harp over the top and a golden lightning shooting from out of the cloud.

Note on the reverse (backs) of flags: It is standard traditional flag construction that images, words and other adornments on a flag are “backwards” when viewed from behind. It is not correct to sew two standard flags back-to-back in order for them to read the same from both directions.
