BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA United World College in Mostar

From UWC, Mostar in Bosnia & Herzegovina we received six paintings submitted on behalf of other schools in the town. Thank you to all the students involved both for their leadership and creativity.


This first design was chosen to represent the young people of Bosnia and Herzegovina and was created by Andrea.

Andrea’s message: “Peace is in love and understanding people.”

The next quote reads: Everything we need is peace.

“Mir je Povezanost” meaning Peace is connection, by Amar P.

We believe the translation of the next quote reads, “Peace is a cool and happy friend.”

We are unsure of the translation for the next quote but is something like ‘Peace is a good life.’ If anyone is able to translate Bosnian we would very grateful if you are able to translate for us.

The final quote is: Mir je sastavni dio Livota meaning Peace is an integral part of life.

Special thanks to Larisa Maksumic, who, as a coordinator in this school, organised students to be leaders for this project. In turn these leaders organised the activity in their town with many paintings completed as a result. It was a great foresight on Larisa’s part and we are very grateful to everyone who has taken part from Mostar. 

Bosnia and Herzegovina Flag Meaning:
The three points of the triangle stand for the three nation theory of Bosnia, representing the people who make up the nation. These are the Croats, Bosniaks and Serbs. The white stars represent Europe and they are meant to be infinite in number.
