All Flags Are Welcome

“Over 40 years ago the presence of this flag [the Irish Tricolour] on this street unleashed a vicious campaign of discrimination and violence against this community lasting decades [see: Flags & Emblems Act 1954] … 45 years on … this flag can flow freely from every corner … All flags are welcome on this road and so are you … failte [fáilte] go dtí … West Belfast.” The mural from Coiste Political Tours is on Divis Street, just beyond down-town Belfast and directed at foreign visitors; the Union Flag, however, is not included among the display of international flags. On the right is a placard for the Eileen Hickey Republican History Museum.
