New banners are ironic

Is it just me or has anyone else picked up the irony in two of the designs on the city’s lamp pole banners this summer?  As usual the banners present artistic takes on various visual icons around Victoria. Looks like the winning submissions must have been chosen some months back, before the bridge referendum or the announcement of Luminara’s demise. Either that or the judging panel has a wicked sense of irony. If you’ve missed them take a look at the banners on Blanshard between Finlayson and Hillside.
