Albania Flag Meaning:
The eagle is taken from an Albanian folk tale. The eagle faithfully watches over and guides the king or the “son of the eagle.”

The eagle dates back to George Castriota, an Albanian Christian who became a Turkish general in the 15th century under the name of Iskander Bey, or Skanderberg. Castriota used the double-headed eagle on his seals and this has led it to being on the modern flag. Albania declared independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1912. All versions of the Albanian flag since then have featured an eagle, even during the Italian occupation of World War II, and its communist regime after the war. Albania became a republic again in 1992.

ALBANIA, World Academy of Tirana

18 Mar

This is the chosen drawing from the World Academy of Tirana which will co represent Albania on the Quilt. This drawing is all the more amazing as it has been done by seven different students between the ages of 6 and 9. Each of the students had a section to work on, which was all brought together in the form of a jigsaw. A wonderful piece of art.

Thank you to all the students and to Channery Nakai, the coordinator at this school for your creativity and completion of the 2012 project for the school.

The students message: “We all wish for Peace because we are one family.”

Albania Flag Description:
The Albanian flag consists of a black, two headed eagle in the centre of the red base. The eagle is taken from an Albanian folk tale. The eagle faithfully watches over and guides the king or the “son of the eagle.”
