And finally, this drawing has been designed by Dimitri Popkhadze.

“Thank you so much for this wonderful project. Students felt themselves as part of a whole world. It was a perfect idea to emphasise international mindedness among our growing generation. We are happy to represent Georgia on a quilt. Besides, it was technically extremely easy to scan and send A4 drawings. Thank you once more!
We look forward to see a photo of the completed Quilt.
Wish you success!
Sophie Keburia, Arts teacher at the “New School” – International School of Georgia. “
A very well done to everyone involved for their brilliant creativeness.
Georgian Flag Meaning:
The central design element of the “Five Cross” flag is the St. George Cross in the middle of it. The St. George Cross is still used as the national flag of England. St George is the patron saint of Georgia. According to Georgian scholar Giorgi Gabeskiria, the four small crosses were probably added during the reign of Giorgi V who drove out the Mongols. Around that era, the new flag design was adopted as a variation of the Jerusalem cross, a symbol used by crusaders in the Holy Land, which also used a central cross with four smaller “crosslets” in its four corners. The crosses are said to have represented the five Holy Wounds of Christ.
