Murals of West Belfast

Ever since the explosion of the Troubles in 1968, popular art has played a major role in proclaiming the loyalties of Belfast's two antagonistic communities. Vivid murals expressing political and paramilitary affiliations adorn the gable ends of houses on both sides of the divide. Kerbstones are also decorated with the colors of respective flags of allegiance. Many tourists to Belfast make the journey specifically to view these murals, which have become (in)famous around the world. One of the best ways to do so is by taking a Black Taxi Tour, which will take you to all the trouble spots of the city while your tour guide explains the distinctive iconography of the murals of both sides.
