SWEDEN, Sjömarkenskolan

8 Dec

And Sweden, Thank you to Lisa Halvarsson 6A for this colourful drawing to represent Sjömarkenskolan, Sweden in the International Peace Quilt project.

Lisa says, ” We all wish for Peace because all of us deserves a happy life.”

Special thanks to Bo-Lennart Govik and Anki Bengtsson (Lisa’s Teacher ) for helping to coordinate this project for Sweden. And thank you Peter Saunders for helping us with this contact.

Swedish Flag Meaning:
The design of the Swedish flag is likely based on the flag of Denmark; while the yellow and blue originate from the Swedish Coat of Arms which features three yellow crowns on a blue base. The cross, common to most Scandinavian flags, represents Sweden’s link to the other Scandinavian countries.
