Members of the Orange Order and their supporters take part in the Twelfth of July parade on July 12, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The controversial flashpoint has seen many outbreaks of serious public disorder in the past due to contentious parades.

The parade passed off peacefully with no nationalist protesters lining the Orangemen's route past the interface, a move which many political commentators regard as progress between the two communities.

The annual 12th of July parades mark the anniversary of the protestant King William of Orange's victory over the Catholic forces of King James at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.
