A newly designed silk scarf featuring the iconic ‘Cambridge Alumnae Banner’.

The Banner, which features the motto, ‘Better is Wisdom than Weapons of War’ was designed by Mary Lowndes and worked on by students of Girton and Newnham. It was carried by the Cambridge contingent in the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies’ procession of 13 June 1908 and in several suffrage processions between 1908 and 1913. The stencilled daisies for Girton and irises for Newnham.
