WHAT DOES ORANGEMAN'S DAY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Orangeman's Day

The Twelfth

The Twelfth is an Ulster Protestant celebration held on 12 July each year. It originated during the 18th century in Ulster, a province of Ireland that was heavily colonized by Protestant settlers from Britain. It celebrates the Glorious Revolution and victory of Dutch Protestant king William of Orange over Catholic King of England James II at the Battle of the Boyne. On and around the Twelfth, large parades are held by the Orange Order and Ulster loyalist marching bands, streets are bedecked with British flags and bunting, and large bonfires are lit. Today the Twelfth is mainly celebrated in Northern Ireland, but smaller celebrations are held in other parts of the world where Orange lodges have been set up. The Twelfth involves thousands of participants and spectators, but not all Ulster Protestants celebrate it. In Ulster, where about half the population is from a Protestant background and half from a Catholic background, the Twelfth has been accompanied by violence since its beginning. Many Catholics and Irish nationalists see the Orange Order and its marches as sectarian, triumphalist and supremacist. The Order also has political links to unionism and Ulster loyalism.
