Thank you so much to all the children who participated in the International Peace Quilt Project from The Vision Center for Culture and Arts, Bethany, Palestine. This is the chosen design to represent Palestinian young people in the Quilt.
We all wish for Peace because we all have the right to live, play and dream.
Special thanks to everyone involved in helping this to happen, Milad Vosgueritchian,Manar Wahhab and also to Rashelly Davis and Doug Dunn for helping to connect us to Palestine. Fantastic job all round, much appreciated.
We welcome the drawing to represent young people of Escola Evangelica Peniel, Canchungo, Guinea-Bissau in The International Peace Quilt. Thank you so much to all students involved from 5th and 6th classes (ages 9-12) for taking part in the school competition.
Think of the people, Think of the wildlife .Peace should be appart of us.The World wants Peace.
Special thank you to Lynne Bogle whom we contacted through Pat Anderson from The Guisborough Rotary Club, for connecting us with schools in the industrial town of Canchungo where She lives. Due to a military coup in this country, the sending of the drawing has been held up.
The black star on the Guinea-Bissau flag symbolizes freedom and the African people; the red stripe represents the blood spilt for the country’s liberty and for the nation’s suffering during colonial rule; while the yellow represents the sun and labor; and the green stands for the lush vegetation, agriculture and hope of Guinea-Bissau.
Today we are delighted to receive the design that represents the young people of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on the International PeaceQuilt. This design has been wonderfully created by a 13-year-old student who attends a middle school located in the capital city of Pyongyang, DPRK.
We wish for world peace because we all want to unite and play together.
This student wanted to show the entire peninsula as “One Korea” with a rainbow uniting both the northern and southern halves of his divided country. The two Korean children in the picture represent his dream in which one-day children from both sides of the Korean peninsula come together and play in peace.
Note: Since the Korean War (1950-1953) the Korean Peninsula remains divided
as two sovereign states, the DPRK and South Korea (ROK).
We are so very grateful to our contact for helping us include young people from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the International Peace Quilt Project in time for the London Games.
We would appreciate your impressions of this drawing. We will then share these thoughts with the artist.
The blue stripes signify sovereignty, peace and friendship. The white stripes signify purity and the heritage of the Korean people. Red represents the revolutionary spirit of the people. The red star is the symbol of communism.
