This design expresses the gratitude we all feel towards the NHS and all key workers as a community. The design is mainly blue, with areas of yellow and orange to represent the feeling of unconditional care doctors, nurses and other key workers offer to us – and as a beacon of the gratitude that we all feel as a community towards all key workers throughout these challenging times.
