# How do we know to what community a vertex belongs to in the Girvan-Newman algorithm?

So I've been doing some reading on community detection in graphs as I'm planning on working on my thesis for it. I've been reviewing papers regarding the same and came across the Girvan-Newman algorithm. I've read the paper and have a doubt which I couldn't really figure out.

The algorithm works by removing the edge which has the highest value of "edge betweenness" in every iteration. Suppose I have a graph $G(V, E)$ such that $V = \{ v_{1}, v_2, \cdots , v_n\}$. Now suppose this graph is such that it has 2 distinct communities (something we already know but that's what the algorithm should detect). After the first iteration, it would remove the edge which has the highest value of edge betweenness. Now my question is, after this is done (or even after a few iterations), say I have any vertex $v_i$, how do we know which community this vertex belong to? Am I missing something here?
