Clyde’s Presence Grows Over Glasgow


Clyde Throughout the build up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, our cheeky mascot Clyde has been busy travelling around the country, being the friendly face of the Games and getting everyone excited for Scotland’s biggest ever celebration of sport and culture. 

With only a matter of weeks to go until the Opening Ceremony, anticipation is growing in the Host City and you may have noticed Clyde’s happy face popping up in locations all over Glasgow.

One of these locations is outside Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the city’s west end, where a giant floral sculpture of Clyde has sprouted to 4.5 metres high – taller than a double decker bus. This is a must-visit for unique photo opportunities, so make sure you stop off before the end of the Games to take some snaps.

Clyde also has his very own workshop in the St Enoch Centre until 9 July, where you might see him getting ready for a special trail in the city. More information will be revealed next week, so keep checking the Glasgow 2014 website and People Make Glasgow Facebook page for further details.

If you happened to be on George Square last Friday (27 June), you may have spotted Clyde and a massive surprise flash mob celebrating the opening of our brand new superstore. This specially designed shop stocks a large range of official Games merchandise – including kilted and metre-high cuddly Clydes!

Clyde will be making appearances at the superstore right up until the end of the Games, so make sure to pop by for your chance to get a photo with our loveable mascot.
