AFGHANISTAN, International School of Kabul

9 May

This is the drawing received from International School of Kabul, Afghanistan. Thank you so much to Katayoon Hamid grade 6 for this great piece. Thanks also to Joel Mangin for coordinating the project in this school,and to all the students and staff that were involved in the successful outcome.

Katayoon`s message is  We all wish for Peace because we don`t want to lose our family and friends and so this World would be a better place.

“We had a competition in the fall to complete a drawing about Peace in Afghanistan and it was a big success.The students were very excited and almost all of the staff voted on the winner, including our school director and principal.” 

This  flag was adopted January 4, 2004. This flag consists of three stripes of the colors black, red, and green. The center emblem is the classical emblem of Afghanistan with a mosque with its mihrab  facing Mecca.

Afghanistan has had more changes of its national flag during the 20th century than any other country in the world.It has had a massive 20 different flags since the first flag in 1747. In only 4 years (1926–1930), Afghanistan had 7 flag changes – many of these flags were used as the nation’s flags for only a few months.
