NEPAL, Ullens School

7 Dec

Thank you to the young people from Ullens School in Nepal for this selection of drawings. One will be chosen to represent them on The International Peace Quilt.

“We all wish for Peace because we want the World to be a better place to live in.”

 

Thanks also to all Staff and to the art teachers Sandhya and Satya for doing such a wonderful job in coordinating the project for Nepals young people.

 

The vision of Ullens School is to become an international center of academic excellence that fosters social responsibility and international-mindedness among our students.

Nepalese Flag Meaning:

The crimson/red color is a traditional Nepalese color and the blue outlined edge represents the country’s peaceful nature. The two triangular portions of the Nepalese flag represent the Himalayan Mountains and the two main religions of the nation – which are Buddhism and Hinduism.  The moon and sun originally represented the royal family and the prime minister’s family, the Rana family. They also represent the country’s desire to live as long as the sun and moon.
