2016 Augustinuscollege


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 colors (coat of arms) of Prince William of Orange, who led the fight for Dutch independence.

Flag of Hong Kong

The flag of Hong Kong features a white, stylised, five-petal Hong Kong orchid tree (Bauhinia blakeana) flower in the centre of a red field. The red symbolises China as well as being a traditional colour for happiness. The flag of Hong Kong was first officially hoisted on 1 July 1997, in the handover ceremony marking the transfer of sovereignty.
