One of the flags carried in the commemoration was that of the Dublin Brigade of the Irish Republican Army.
Fifty-one years before, at Easter 1966, it was carried on a march celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Rising, and led to baton charges when the Gardaí made futile attempts to seize it. No enraged Gardaí or branchmen this time, though some of those who were imprisoned for defending it then were marching behind it again. An account of that incident can be found in Chapter 4 of The Irregulars.
