It appears President Donald Trump’s team has made an error in its St. Patrick's Day version of the popular “Make America Great Again” hats – and it’s causing a stir online.
 
While the cap is traditionally red, Trump’s team has released a green version in advance of St. Patrick's Day, which is March 17.
 
But as Time points out, the hat’s biggest nod to St. Patty’s Day is actually incorrect.
 
A four-leaf clover emblazons the back of the cap, but social media users were quick to point out that four-leaf clovers – while rumored to bring good luck -- are, in fact, not an Irish symbol. 
 
The real symbol of Ireland is the shamrock, which has only three leaves. 
 
Twitter responded accordingly. See the reactions below:
