Protestants in Northern Ireland (Ulster) celebrated the one hundredth year anniversary of the Ulster Covenant this weekend with parades in Belfast and a festival at Stormont (the capital). A large portion of Ulster’s population is Ulster-Scots, people descended from Scottish settlers. In North America the Ulster-Scots are often called Scots-Irish. They are most heavily concentrated in Appalachia and the Upper South but have also spread out and across much of the rest of the South as well as other areas of the United States.
In the picture below, some Orangemen march with the Confederate flag of Dixie. The Bonnie Blue flag can also be seen to the left.
