From the Maldives we received over 600 drawings. A huge thank you to everyone involved into having the project a huge success for the Iskandher School. Following are a few of the designs submitted.
We all wish for Peace because we love World
We all wish for Peace because its very peaceful at night
We all wish for Peace because it never harms
We all wish for Peace because …for a better future
We all wish for peace because we all need freedom.
We all wish for Peace because we will get along more together.
We thank Diane Stephens from Skillshare, North East LTD, for using her available contacts through Government to help us reach a school in the Maldives. Iskandher school has been reached through the British High Commissioner Farahanaz Faizal through Hon. David Amess, member of parliament for Southend West. From them the journey went through Soodha, teacher educator in The Maldives Education Department who found a school wishing to take part. Well done everyone.
Special thanks to everyone in the school: to Rinzy, Deputy Principal, and all the staff and students involved in completing a wonderful journey on what can be achieved by many working together.

The flag of Maldives consists of a red background with a green rectangle in the middle of it. In the middle of the rectangle there is a white crescent pointing towards the right side of the Maldives flag. The Maldives flag was adopted on July 25, 1963. The flag of Maldives was originally a plain red flag. Up until 1949, the crescent pointed towards the left. The country gained independence from Britain on July 16, 1965.
