This mural shows Sir Edward Carson in 1912 &quot;consecrating&quot; the colors of the Ulster Volunteer Force, an exclusively Protestant militia that was formed to oppose Home Rule...with the use of force if necessary --with the weapons provided by the Kaiser's Germany, which is rather ironic to say the least (taking arms from Britain's enemy to remain &quot;British&quot;).
