Following the end of its sponsorship with PolySteel UK on 31 August, the PolySteel Band is reverting back to the name of Flowers. Whilst it will not have a connection with the famous brewery, the band has agreed terms under a licence which will allow it to use the name that made it famous. Lee Downie of the band revealed: "The band is very proud of its history and particularly the Flowers name. We have been fortunate to secure a brand license from the owner of the Flowers Brand, Inbev UK, to enable us to use the name and also the world famous logo." Flowers’ first official appearance in its new guise will be at the British Open, where it will be conducted by David Hirst. Lee further commented: "The British Open provides the band with a platform on which to re-launch the Flowers name and at the moment due to the name, conductor and leadership changes, the band has a renewed energy which we hope we can use to our advantage and get a good placing at the ‘Open’ to secure our future in the competition." The new name has meant a complete re-branding for the band with new uniforms and a new website at www.flowersband.co.uk.
