This graphic pansy flower design was my first thought when thinking of Shankill as I grew up in Shankill and my grandparents always had them in the garden. I then started to notice them around the village and on the roundabout and associate them with these places. It’s also because flowers grow in a community that Shankill has always had a very strong sense of and is continuously involved in the tidy town's project and keeping the community beautiful.
