LESOTHO, SOS Hermann Gmeiner Primary School

19 Mar

We welcome the chosen drawing received from the SOS Hermann Gmeiner Primary School, Lesotho.

This colourful drawing illustrates people from all nations, holding hands whilst stood on top of the world.

Thank you to Nkululeko Rapopo aged 13, for this colourful “peace” which was an unexpected entry in the project.

A further thank you to all staff and students from this school for sending us their submission to represent Lesotho in the 2012 Schools’ International Peace Quilt. 

Flag of Lesotho.svg

Current Lesotho Flag:

The current Lesotho flag was officially adopted in 2006 marking 40 years of Lesotho’s independence. It features three horizontal stripes of blue,white, and green in a Tricolour. In the centre is a black silhouette of a mokorotlo, a traditional Basotho straw hat.

Previous Lesotho Flag:
The previous Lesotho flag was adopted on January 19, 1987, after a military coup, replacing the flag that was adopted when Lesotho gained independence from Britain on October 4, 1966. The country also changed its name from Basutoland on this date.
