He may remain sartorially challenged but at least the Grand Orange Lodge’s superhero character now has a name.
Back in November 2007 downthetubes reported on the nameless character who was being introduced via a competition to name him. Seven year old Steven Mitchell of Lisburn came up with the winning name of Diamond Dan The Orangeman – Dan Winter being one of the founding fathers of the organisation. Other possibilities had included the rather obvious Sashman and the amusing Boyne Wonder.
The character will now be featured on merchandise including badges, notebooks and fridge magnets.
