Hundreds of onlookers watched as a bonfire festooned with British and Loyalist flags went up in flames in Bogside area of Derry, known officially as Londonderry, on Thursday evening.
The bonfire was erected in the early hours of the morning and towered over the surrounding iconic Meenan Square.
A number of symbols of British rule in Ireland were tied to the bonfire, including one banner referencing the case of solider F, a former British paratrooper charged with the death of two civil rights protesters on 'Bloody Sunday' in 1972.
Bonfires are traditionally lit in Derry and throughout Ireland in August to mark the Catholic Feast of the Assumption of Mary.
