The Republic of the Marshall Islands, Majuro Cooperative School.

10 Aug

This design is most certainly a united effort as all the names of those who have contributed are displayed around the edge.

The students message: “We all wish for Peace because we are one great big family living under the same sky.”

Thank you to Devin Michel for coordinating this project for the Majuro Cooperative School in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Plus a massive thank you to all the students for their input.  The school represents diverse cultural and socio economic backgrounds; integration at it`s finest.

The Marshall Islands flag was adopted on May 1, 1979. The Marshall Islands gained independence from the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands on October 21, 1986. The President’s wife, Emlain Kabua, designed the Marshall Islands flag and it was chosen from among 50 other flag designs.
