“This is our contribution to the Peace Quilt, it´s a traditional Costa Rican landscape.
The quote was created by a 4th grade student, the original idea for the landscape was developed by one of our 4th graders but this particular drawing was done by one of our 5th grade students.
Please let me know if there is anything else we can help you with!” Marta
Their message: “We all wish for peace because it`s love`s sister and happiness` brother.”
Thank you to Marta Merino, Art teacher, for the successful completion of this project for Costa Rica.
Costa Rican Flag Meaning:
The colours of the Costa Rican flag represent different aspects of Costa Rica: The colour blue represents the sky, opportunities at reach, intellectual thinking, perseverance, infinite, eternity, and ideals of the religious and spiritual desires; the colour white symbolises clear thinking, happiness, wisdom, power and beauty of the sky, initiative to search for new endeavours, and peace; and the colour red represents the warmth of the Costa Rican people, their love of life, their blood shed for freedom, and their generosity.
