Orangemen's Day commemorates the Battle of the Boyne, which took place in 1690 outside Drogheda, now in the Republic of Ireland. It is a provincial holiday in Newfoundland and Labrador on the Monday closest to July 12.
Generally celebrated by people with a Protestant Irish or Scottish background, particularly those who support the Orange Order. In some areas of Newfoundland and Labrador parades are organized by Lodges of the Orange Order. During these parades, members of the lodges and their families march along a pre-arranged route carrying banners showing the name of the lodge and symbols associated with the Orange Order.
