Well done to everyone involved from this school. A really powerful message for Peace by All.
The Belarus flag consists of two horizontal stripes, the upper stripe of the Belarus flag is red, and the lower stripe is green in color. The flag has a red ornamental pattern on a white vertical stripe leveled at the hoist. The green stripe symbolizes the future, hope, spring and revival and also the forests and fields of Belarus. The red color symbolizes Belarus’ past and the blood shed by the country men to achieve independence. The decorative pattern on the flag symbolizes Belarus’ rich cultural heritage, its spiritual continuity, and the unity of its people.
