QATAR, The Qatar Leadership Academy

This is the winning drawing to represent the Qatar Leadership Academy of Qatar. Thank you to Alhareth Mohammedali who created this piece. Looking closely in the wings of the bird are the words “Peace”  and “Life” in Arabic.

Alhareth writes, “We all wish for peace because it is a right.”

Also thank you to Adnan Makovic for the organisation of this project in the school and to all other students involved.

Qatar Flag Meaning:

The white portion of the Qatar flag symbolises peace and the maroon, which was formerly red, represents the Kharijite Muslims of Qatar and the bloodshed in Qatar’s many wars. The serrated edge represents Qatar as the 9th member of the ‘reconciled Emirates’ of the Arabian Gulf at the conclusion of the Qatari-British treaty in 1916.
