The left-most mural (No. 1 of 9) in Percy Place, Belfast. The central motif of a red hand on a Saltire is unusual. 1690 is the date of King William III’s victory at the Battle of the Boyne.

Side-by-side murals in Craven Street, one showing a farmer’s wife defending the farm (the stone wall) and British rule in Ireland (the Union flag) while her husband is off at war, the other “in proud and loving memory” of three UVF volunteers assassinated by the IRA: Shankill Butcher Lenny Murphy, John Bingham, and William “Frenchie” Marchant. “Lest we forget.”
