Orange Order open new museum without the Tricolour.

A big deal or a storm in a tea cup? As journalists went to the opening of a new museum to commeorate important events involving Orange culture they noticed something missing on the outside of the building

But the Orange Order had an explanation;

The former Irish President, Mary McAleese was at the opening and made no comment about it.

Have the Orange Order missed a trick? Should they have raised the Tricolour to represent their lodges in the South and make a step towards the “inclusive unionism” that Peter Robinson regularly talks about?
