Cloud and Banner are two modern wooden structures on the site of the now demolished Tait’s Tower, which was erected for Glasgow’s 1938 Empire Exhibition. They stand within a grove on the summit of the park’s drumlin. It’s my favourite area of this park, wilder than the lower grassy grounds. I have been unable to find the name of the sculptor but on googling, find that the Order of the Cloud and Banner is a Chinese military award for contributions to national security, instituted in 1935. This seems a peculiar connection for a sculpture commemorating the Empire Exhibition so I’ll take a closer look for an explanatory plaque next time I’m up there.
