A bald eagle carrying a medallion reading “Commonwealth of Kentucky. (Dan Boone led the settlers into Kentucky, according to the mural previously in this spot.) United we stand, divided we fall” flies alongside a sailing ship carrying Ulster-Scots emigrants to the United States (the outer jib shows a thistle surrounded by shamrocks). Abbot Gardens, Newtownards.
