From the Netherlands we have received this lovely design which has been drawn by Damaris Andrade age 15. Damaris produced the drawing with the help of the schools cultural-artistical education teacher Daniëlle Bosman and her English teacher Chantal Laarman.
Damaris says: We all wish for peace because this is the way to happiness.
Damaris went on to answer the following questions:
What was in your mind when you were creating your drawing?
This drawing represents what peace feels like for me. Different cultures live in this world. Together, they form a brotherhood. Racism destroys this brotherhood, but peace unites it.
Why do you think peace is important?
Peace means love and happiness. Without peace you have neither.
A huge thank you to Chantal Laarman and everyone involved from the CSG Augustinus school.
Netherlands Flag Meaning:
The red stripe which was originally orange, along with the white and blue stripes, are based on the heraldic colours (coat of arms) of Prince William of Orange, who led the fight for Dutch independence.
