Ulster-Scots can be Pro-Orange and Pro-Green at the same time

Complexity in action: Cullybackey Ulster-Scots poet Adam Lynn's "The Twalt O July" is comfortably pro-1690 and in the next verse also pro-1798 'turn-oot'

And below is Adam Lynn's admonishment that to be community-minded "like men", all should "strive tae keep ill-feelin' doon" in order to have a "bricht ... Twalt Day". These are from his 1911 collection Random Rhymes which are online here.
