The top left panel remembers Jacques Buisson and features a multicoloured rocket zooming into space.

The top right panel remembers John Crancher, Vaughn Toulouse and Frank McEwan whose names appear one after the other with a red tartan border.

The centre left panels remember Jay and Joe Sennott. On Jay’s panel is a red ribbon, the symbol of HIV AIDS remembrance.

The centre right panels remember Otmar and Christoper M Grant. Both designs feature a patchwork of different images relating to their lives.

The bottom left panel remembers Freddie Mercury with a black and white chessboard-like design with images of the Queen singer across the panel.
