THE NETHERLANDS, Augustinus College

29 Mar

This is the received drawing to represent the Netherlands on the art Quilt. The school held a competition from which this design was chosen from several others completed. Special thanks to Laura Oest for this wonderful piece of art which really typifies this country. 

Laura’s wish for peace: “We all wish for Peace because war separates people and Peace unites them.”

Also thank you to Chantal Laarman for having this project possible for the Netherlands.

Netherlands Flag Meaning:
The red stripe which was originally orange, along with the white and blue stripes, are based on the heraldic colours (coat of arms) of Prince William of Orange, who led the fight for Dutch independence.
