Today on International Peace day September 21st, 2010 we have received drawing number two from the Bakau Primary school in The Gambia. Thank you to the schools Headmaster, Alhagie Dukaray for his and the schools total commitment to the Peace Quilt. Also an additional thank you to Alex Rails the U.K. coordinator for helping us contact this school. This is a lovely colourful piece which comes with a great message from the children.

“We all need Peace, we love Peace,

We like and talk Peace,

We seek Peace,We make Peace,

We cultivate Peace,

Peace is a great asset to humanlife,

Peace for all and the World will ever be a Happy place to live.”

The red stripe represents the sun shining on the Gambia River and the blue represents that river, which runs through the center of the country and the center of the flag. The green symbolizes the land, forests and agriculture and the white stripes stand for unity, peace and purity.
