What an amazing job by all concerned. This school inspires learners of today to be global citizen leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you all and especially to Samia Nasr Boulad for coordinating such a big project in your school. Additional thanks also to art teachers Mrs. Layla Hamasni and Mrs. Lara Mansour.  All your work is much appreciated.

Flag Description

The flag of Lebanon consists of two equal-sized red horizontal stripes that are placed at the top and bottom of the flag. In between the red stripes is a white stripe that is equal in size to the red stripes. In the middle of the flag and white stripe there is an image of a green cedar tree.

The cedar tree represents peace, immortality and tolerance. The red stripes symbolize martyrdom and self-sacrifice, and the white represents the snow-capped peaks of Lebanon’s mountains. Historically, red and white have symbolized the Kayssites (red) and the Yemmenites (white), who were opposing clans within the Lebanese territory between 634 and 1711.

    What a creative and collaborative way to create a more peaceful world! Our learners really expressed what we all believe in. May their words and drawings contribute to World Peace!
