Because we need it to be happy, live in a safe environment, and be able to enjoy our lives without violence.

What were you thinking while you were doing your drawing?

I was thinking of making earth clean and safe, and showing millions of people holding up the peace sign as a way that everyone wants peace in the world.

Peace is important, because peace will make people more respectful and caring. Will reduce fighting and bullying around the whole world. I think that we really need peace nowadays.

This colourful design has been drawn by Hana Mostafa aged 14 from Grade 8.

Hana says: We all wish for peace because we need to love each other – we all need to be happy!

Why do you think peace is important?

Peace is important because it makes people happy, it makes people love each other, and it will make no wars between people. Thus, no kids or people die in the wars around the world.

What were you thinking while you were doing your drawing?

When I was doing the painting, I was thinking about presenting all of the good things in peace in just one drawing. I was thinking about the people that were dying every day because of the wars around the world.

A big thank you to Heba for coordinating the 2016 Schools’ International Peace Quilt in Egypt. Additional thanks to all other staff involved and to all these special students for their expressive designs for peace.

Egyptian Flag Meaning:
The colours of the Egyptian flag are traditional Pan-Arabic colours. The red stripe refers to the period before the 1952 revolution; which brought a group of army officers to power after deposing King Farouk, the King of Egypt. This period was characterized by the struggle against British occupation of the country. The white symbolizes the revolution which ended the monarchy but without bloodshed. The colour black symbolizes the end of the oppression of the Egyptian people at the hands of the Monarchy and British colonialism.
