The owl was created by Fozia Malik and the OCCIC women’s empowerment group in Bordesley Green. The inspiration came from the local community and the colours used on the owl represent the vibrancy and vivacity of the Bordesley Green area. The rear of the owl represents the diversity and strength of the women’s group showcasing the silhouette of a girl looking out to the stars for inspiration and reflection.
