Charleston Shooting Flags Abroad

Charleston Shooting Flags Abroad

FILE – This is a Wednesday, April 17, 2013 file photo of Irish Republicans as they celebrate with a cavalcade flying the Irish tricolor through the Bogside area of Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The protesters were were celebrating the funeral of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher earlier in the day. The flying of rival British and Irish flags has triggered street clashes for decades in Northern Ireland and continues to deepen divisions today. Both the British Protestant and Irish Catholic sides of the community stake their competing claims to turf using flags: for Catholics the green, white and orange tricolor of the Republic of Ireland, and for Protestants, the red, white and blue Union Jack of the United Kingdom.
