Thank you also to her art teacher Emma Hamilton who undertook the project with Year 6 students.”Many thanks for involving us, it has been a fantastic experience and the children even went on to make some peace sculptures with clay. Good luck with getting the quilt made in time for the Olympics and we would love to see a copy of the finished piece which I am sure will look amazing.”

Polish Flag Meaning:
The colours of the Polish flag are based on the colours of the national coat of arms which is a white eagle on a red shield and dates back to 13th century. The red symbolises the blood shed in the country’s fight for independence and the white symbolises peace.
