Red Hand

The Red Hand is the symbol of Ulster because according to a myth, a boat race was held to determine the king - first, to touch the shore wins the crown. One potential king saw he was losing, so cut off his hand (covering it red with blood) and threw it on the shore, thus winning the race.
