RUSSIA, The International School of Moscow

31 Mar

This is the drawing chosen to represent students of the International School of Moscow, Russia on the international art quilt.

The students’ message: “Peace is a power that cannot be defeated or destroyed.”

Thank you to Pratibha Arora, Y1A teacher for the coordination of this project in your school.

Russian Flag Meaning:
The design of the Russian flag is based on the flag of the Netherlands.

The Russian flag has also inspired the flags of many Slavic nations of Europe, and the colours are often referred to as the pan-Slavic colours.They have come to represent Slavic independence and unity. There is no official meaning of the Russian flag but some Russians believe the following: In Russia the white symbolises generosity and frankness; blue stands for loyalty, honesty and wisdom; red means courage, magnanimity and love. Many people also believe red represents Russian people, blue represents the Ukrainians, and white represents the Belo Russians.
