upper part of the banner shows the spiritual life of the city with
the Cathedral, the mother church of Glasgow surrounded by elements
illustrating other principal religions.
central image shows the Eastern Tree of Life designed by Lorraine
Davin and the Castlehead Group, Paisley. The embroidery was created
by Asian and Paisley women, ably assisted by schoolchildren. It
shows how the cultures of east and west meet through the Paisley
motif which has its roots in Asia. There are many traditional Asian
techniques involved in the manufacture of the banner and as a result
it is rich and vivid.
