TURKEY, Islim Marufogu Elementary School

31 Mar

Here we welcome the drawing to represent Turkey on the International Peace Quilt. Thank you to all the students involved from Islim Marufogu Elementary School, Nizip. 

Their message reads: “We all wish for Peace because peace gives birth to love and love gives birth to a human….”

Thank you to Songul Csonka for co-ordinating the project in this school. Also special thanks to Eva Fejer for helping us  reach Turkey and  the Islim Marufogu Elementary School.

Interesting Turkish Flag Facts:
The Flag of Turkey is called ‘Ay Yildiz’ in Turkish which means ‘moon star’ in English.

Another nickname for the Turkish flag is ‘al sancak’, which translates roughly into ‘red banner’.
