A teenager in an orange sash took a selfie as she marched up the Lisburn Road. The Flag Parade was flanked by armed police, monitored from the sky by helicopters, and filmed on phones from a hundred different angles.
Tweeted, then retweeted. Liked and shared.
A curious coalition; the merging of our new digital, stateless, online identities - with the antiquated, Luddite concept of identity involving flags and patriotism.
