NORWAY, Skagerak International School

15 Aug

This is the drawing received from the Skagerak International School in Norway, chosen by staff members from a number of designs created by students of their Global Issues group.

The artist, Monika Karlsen and the children from Norway say:

We all wish for Peace,We all can live as equals.”

Thank you so much to Monika Karlsen, Angela Broekel, as well as the students and staff involved, especially as this drawing turned up after being missing in action for awhile. We are really grateful for its reappearance three weeks after a difficult time for this country.

Norwegian Flag Meaning:
The colours of the Norwegian flag are believed to have been influenced by the flags of France, the United States and Britain and are considered the colours of liberty and independence. The cross is common to most Scandinavian flags, and represents Norway’s link to the other Scandinavian countries.
