AUSTRIA, St. Gilgen International School

Diana St Gilgen International School Peace Quilt 2016Here we have the design chosen to represent young people of Austria and the St. Gilgen International School, for the 2016 Schools’ International Peace Quilt. Thank you to Diana for her lovely piece.

Diana says:

We all wish for Peace because people deserve to live in Love, Happiness and Peacefulness. Peace brings Hope.

Special thanks also to Kirsty Lamont for coordinating the project for Austria and to everyone who took part in the school.

 “We love this project and the students are just so proud to be apart of it.”

Legend has it that Duke Leopold V. of Austria (1157-1194) was involved in a battle during the Crusades, and after the fight his white battledress was soaked in blood. When he removed his belt, though, the cloth underneath was still white. That very sight is said to have inspired the red, white and red stripes on the Austrian flag.

Representing Austria we have this beautiful drawing created by Maryia Fursina of Grade 8. Thank you to Kirsty Lamont the Art teacher from St. Gilgen`s School for organising the project in the school and choosing the drawing to represent Austria.

Maryia’s message: “We all wish for Peace because we are all one big family.”

“This was such a fantastic project, and we have had a lot of fun making the peace posters.”  Kirsty Lamont.

Thank you all so much.
