Combinatorial objects, such as graphs, can often be used to construct representations of abstract algebras. In this talk we will consider a graph possessing a high degree of regularity, known as a distance-regularity. For this graph we define an algebra generated by the adjacency matrix and a certain diagonal matrix. There exists a set of elements in this algebra that, under a minor assumption, satisfy some attractive relations. Using these relations we obtain a representation of the quantum affine sl2 algebra.
