Broken Covenant

The second panel of the four shown here in Donegall Pass, Belfast, is the most interesting. The upper circle is labelled “Ulster 2001” and shows a modern volunteer between the UVF and YCV symbols. In the lower circle, which is labelled “Ulster 1916”, is a portrait of Carson and the text of the 1912 Ulster Covenant and a headstone which is broken and bloodied. The other panels contain the UVF emblem, the YCV emblem, and the emblem of the 26 (Ulster) Division.
