This image of two derelict houses in a late-Victorian or Edwardian terrace, decorated with the symbols of opposition, seeks to sum up the destruction of the community as a result of the sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. The green, white and gold Easter lily symbolises the Republic of Ireland, while the red, white and blue of the Union Flag signifies the Unionist attachment to the idea of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
