We are routinely ignored by politicians in the city (except around election time), but today council leader Gordon Matheson unveiled a new city slogan which uses the people of Glasgow as its focus. Millions of pounds will be spent over the next few years promoting the city as 'People Make Glasgow
', including £500,000 in the first year alone.
Politicians will be hoping that the new slogan proves to be even more popular than the Glasgow's Miles Better
tagline which was launched 30 years ago this week, and which many Glaswegians would have liked to see return.
On launching the new slogan, Mr Matheson, who has come in for much criticism recently for his handling of the George Square revamp fiasco, said:
"It's bold, friendly, confident, and it evokes a real sense of pride. The people of Glasgow are at the heart of this brand - we have created something which presents a truly distinctive identity for the city and on behalf of Glasgow I would like to warmly thank all those who gave their ideas so generously."What do YOU think of the new city slogan?
