The first drawing from BRUNEI, International School of Brunei

9 Sep

Brunei  035

The first drawing contributed to the Schools’ International Peace Quilt was received from the International School of Brunei back on 30th June 2010 and is the very first design to be posted on our newly established blog.

As Brunei is known as the Abode of PEACE, it is very fitting that the first completed picture is from this country.

This drawing was created by a student named  Rakshana, from year 9, although we are told she created the picture while in year 8.

Special thanks to Rakshana, whose wish is:

“We all wish for Peace because with Peace comes Love and with Love we can achieve anything.”

An additional thank you to her wonderful Art teacher, Janet Jinadasa, for setting the project in action. Huge thanks for that!

Brunei Flag Meaning:
The coat of arms on the Brunei flag is a crescent (symbol of Islam) joined with a parasol (symbol of monarchy), with two gloves on both sides. Below the crescent is a ribbon. The crescent and ribbon have Arabic inscriptions which translate to “State of Brunei, Abode of peace” and “There is no deity but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God”.
