Here we have the two  wonderful paintings/ pieces received from young people in the Elena Gjika School in Kosovo. Thank you so much to everyone involved and to Dorina Lluka from the YMCA in Kosovo for helping us to contact a school from this Country.

Flag of Kosovo.svg

Until 2008, Kosovo did not have a flag to call their own.

The flag of the Republic of Kosovo was adopted by the Assembly of Kosovo immediately following the declaration of independence of the Republic of Kosovo from Serbia. on 17 February 2008. The flag is the result of an international design competition, organized by the United Nations-backed Kosovo Unity Team, which attracted almost one thousand entries. The now-used design is a variant of one proposal designed by Muhamer Ibrahimi. It shows six white stars in an arc above a golden map of Kosovo on a blue field. They are officially meant to symbolize Kosovo’s six major ethnic groups. 

Only three flags in the world contain the pictures of the countries they represent. These are the flags of Kosovo, Cyprus, and Christmas Island.
