Thank you to the students from Palau High School in The Republic of Palau for their contribution to The International Peace Quilt. Well done to Fremont Mengidab for this first one which includes a colourful rainbow,flags of many different Countries,and the islands.
This drawing has also been created by Fremont and describes the many different ways Peace is shown in Palau.
A.Our traditions promote Peace by exchanging gifts.
B.Our tradition promotes Peace by offering sanctuary and refuge to foreigners in need.
C.Our tradition promotes Peace by setting the extended families to gather money for financial burdens.
D.Our tradition promotes Peace by relatives coming together and contribute money to purchase a new home.
Thank you so much to Ibuuch Tomoichi Principal of Palau High School for coordinating the International Peace Quilt for Palau.
The blue base symbolizes the political maturity of Palau, and its journey from foreign control to independence. The yellow circle represents the moon, a sign of national unity and, according to Palauan belief, represents the best time for traditional activities, such as fishing, harvesting, planting and festivals.
