AUSTRIA, St. Gilgen International

2 Feb

Representing Austria we have this beautiful drawing created by Maryia Fursina of Grade 8. Thank you to Kirsty Lamont the Art teacher from St. Gilgen`s School for organising the project in the school and choosing the drawing to represent Austria.

Maryia’s message: “We all wish for Peace because we are all one big family.”

“This was such a fantastic project, and we have had a lot of fun making the peace posters.”  Kirsty Lamont.

Thank you all so much.

Austrian Flag Meaning:
Legend has it that Duke Leopold V. of Austria (1157-1194) was involved in a battle during the Crusades, and after the fight his white battledress was soaked in blood. When he removed his belt, though, the cloth underneath was still white. That very sight is said to have inspired the red, white and red stripes on the Austrian flag.
