Due to the latest guidance from the NI Executive, our museums will remain closed for a planned 6 week period from the 23 December. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to our museums when it is safe to do so and we would like to thank the public for their continued support and patience.
Photograph of meeting in the Ulster Hall to endorse the text of the Ulster Covenant, September 1912. The platform party in the Ulster Hall are backed by the ‘largest Union Jack every made’ which may or may not be the same one which flew over the Balmoral review in April. The Ulster Hall flag was apparently 48 feet by 25 feet in size. This meeting of the Ulster Unionist Council endorsed the text and a box can be seen in front of the platform party, which was used for members to record their vote.
