The “Let Glasgow Flourish” words originally came from the city motto adorning Glasgow’s coat of arms in 1866. The motto is a shortened version of the words inscribed on the bell of Tron church cast in 1631 - “Lord, Let Glasgow flourish through the preaching of thy word and praising thy name”. The city motto was at the forefront of designer, Vicky Lovatt’s mind when creating her design.
The Glasgow School of Art had been terribly damaged by fire, not once, but twice, and Vicky thought how the artists within it must continue to flourish even if they do not currently have the inspirational building, within which to work. To rise from the ashes with creativity is a wondrous thing. Vicky’s female figures might at first glance appear mournful, but they are in quiet contemplation, gathering themselves for the task ahead – helping to keep the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Glasgow Four alive, as Glasgow flourishes for a new generation to enjoy.
