I love flegs
— Northern Irelandball

Northern Irelandball /Occupied Ulster is the insane son of UK-icon UKball, and is one of the most twisted and crazy countryballs in the entire Earth-icon world.

He has an unhealthy obsession with flags due to not having an official flag himself, and would display all sorts of flags throughout his clay, ranging from the Union Jack and the Scottish flag, to the KKK, Nazi and Confederate flags (how he got those remains a mystery).

Mentioning the word 'flag' to him will result in a disastrous meltdown. Every 12th of July (known as Twelfth Night, and it has nothing to do with Shakespeare's work), he will burn Irish flags in a bonfire, but in several events, he had accidentally burned the Italian flag and the Ivory Coast flag instead. He is highly explosive; therefore, great care must be taken to keep him away from his triggers (flags, potatoes, petrol bombs, Catholics and police cars). During his bouts of insanity and violence, play ice cream van music to calm him down.

There are also numerous graffiti and murals in buildings all over Northern Irelandball's clay, usually referring to the artist's political affiliation. One notable one says "fat people are hard to kidnap".

It's a recurring gag in the Polandball Universe that he can't live a normal life without help from Ireland-icon Irelandball and UK-icon UKball. He is incapable of speaking proper English despite being UKball's son, and the only words that he is capable of uttering are 'Norn Iron', 'fleg' and 'bomb'. If he meets another countryball with a hand on its flag, he will give them a high five.



Northern Irelandball was born in 1921. Right afterwards, Ireland-icon Irelandball almost killed himself over what to do with him. He shares a strong interest in obsession about potatoes with Irelandball.

Whenever his "fleg" is taken away from him, quite literally the sh!t hits the fan and all hell breaks loose. During Twelfth Night (aka Flag Burning Night), when the Irish flags was replaced with an Italian flag and Ivory Coast flag, he wasn't able to tell the difference and burned them anyway.

Shortly before his birth, he built the RMS Titanic. To this day, he is famous for this invention and is so proud of it that he built a museum specially to commemorate it, which sometimes closes due to water damage. Whether it's deliberate or not is disputed. Not surprisingly, he also developed the Atomic Bomb. His law forbids anyone from sneaking precious potatoes out of his clay.

In some comics he is depicted as being able to talk. In these his personality is usually bland.

How to draw

There are two possible ways to draw Northern Ireland

First and more formally:

  1. Draw England's red cross
  2. Draw the emblem on it
  3. Draw one eye slightly larger than the other for a retarded look

Secondly, easier but less formal

  1. Draw Red diagonal cross


Fleg? Fleg! Fleg!!! FLEEEEGGG!!! *Explodes*
