Big and colourful with powerful imagery, trade union banners are potent symbols of the trade unions and the workers they represent. Join Social History Curator Fiona Hayes to discuss the story of this painted banner from its creation through to its acquisition by Glasgow Museums. How and why the banner was made?  How was it used? What’s on the other side of the banner? How does it reflect Glasgow’s recent social and industrial history?
