Very well done to all these girls and to Dawa for helping coordinate the project for this school . “Its completely their original work without any edition done.” Dawa.

Utpal is another name for lotus flower, which is believed to grow from mud and yet blossoms into a beautiful and majestic flower. It stands for purity. Symbolically, it also stands for the transformation of our girls. What an apt name for the school!

The colors of the Bhutan flag represent spiritual and temporal power within the country.

Thank you so much to everyone from SOS- Hermann Gmeiner International School-Monrovia Liberia for these colourful pieces which we received today in the post along with a letter with a description of each drawing and this letter from Mr. Emmanuel A. Kyei

This letter explains how Liberia has been emerging from the doldrums of fourteen years of civil war, and sees the promotion of World Peace as a PRIORITY.

“I wish you could see the excitement with which the children  crafted those peace drawing!!:)  You will be more excited to know that these children  actually started the discussion of the meaning and the significance of their drawings with us as we guided them,”

MR. EMMANUEL C.  MORGAN National Communication and Advocacy Officer

Liberian Flag Meaning:
The 11 stripes symbolize the 11 signatories of the Liberian declaration of independence. The red and white colors symbolize courage and moral excellence. The white star represents the freedom the ex-slaves were given and the blue square represents the African mainland.
