    Large Framed Northern Ireland ‘Ulster Banner’ U.V.F. Flag Liberated from The Crowd Obstacle Drumcree 2000 By The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment (RGBW) Presented To Capt Alan Griffiths By ‘A’ Company 1 RGBW. Sn 11234 - 11234

    The 'Ulster Banner’ is one name given to the flag referred to as the flag of Northern Ireland, the 'Red Hand Flag' or as the 'Ulster Flag' (not to be confused with the provincial Flag of Ulster). The Ulster Banner was the official flag used to represent the Government of Northern Ireland from 1953 to 1973. In Northern Ireland, some members from each of the Unionist and Nationalist communities use flags to declare their political allegiances and to mark territory. Unionists and Loyalists including the UVF (Ulster Volunteer Force) fly the Union Flag and Ulster Banner to show their support for the Union and their allegiance to Northern Ireland. The Drumcree conflict or Drumcree standoff is an ongoing dispute over a yearly parade in the town of Portadown, Northern Ireland. The "Drumcree parade" is held on the Sunday before the Twelfth of July. The dispute is between the Orange Order (an Ulster Protestant, unionist organization) and local residents, who are mostly Catholic and/or Irish nationalist. There have been intermittent violent clashes during the parade since at least 1873. The onset of the Troubles led to the dispute intensifying and Drumcree being likened to a ‘War Zone’. From 1998 onward part of the march route was banned and the Catholic area was sealed-off with large steel, concrete and barbed-wire barricades. Each year there was a major standoff at Drumcree and widespread violence. The 2000 Drumcree march took place on Sunday 2 July. The Nationalist area was sealed-off with barricades, a crowd of over fifty Loyalists appeared at Drumcree and gunmen fired a volley of shots in the air for a cheering crowd. Security forces used water cannon against Loyalist protesters at the Drumcree barricade. This was their first deployment in Northern Ireland for over 30 years. The RGBW Regiment (1994-2007) served in Northern Ireland in 1997 and 2000 providing security in the many now familiar town names of Crossmaglen, Forkhill, Newton Hamilton and Bessbrook areas. In 2000 the 1st Battalion occupied Abercorn Barracks on the South Down peninsular. This is an excellent large framed Loyalist ‘Ulster Banner’ liberated from the ‘Crowd Obstacle’ at Drumcree in 2000 and presented to Capt Alan Griffiths By ‘A’ Company 1 RGBW. The printed white cotton flag has a central vivid ‘red hand’ of Ulster within 6 pointed star (representing the 6 Counties) surmounted by Crown on the English Cross of St George. The flag is clean with no damage. The top and bottom of the frame have card inserts displaying printed representations of the RGBW cap badges. The top insert is printed ‘Flag Liberated From The Crowd Obstacle Drumcree 2000’ the bottom ‘Presented To Capt Alan Griffiths By ‘A’ Company 1 RGBW’ (both illustrated inset in image 3). The rear of the frame has handwritten signatures of Battalion members. The Flag is contained in its brown wood glazed frame which is mounted with hangers to the rear for wall mounting. This item including frame measures 43” x 34” x 1”. The small areas of glare shown in the illustrated images are merely reflections from the camera flash. An interesting piece. Due to the size of this item and the fact it has a glazed frame delivery will be within the UK only and at cost by arrangement. Sn 11234
