Peace Walk

As a part of "Flags, Symbols and Nationalism" Focus Week, students organised a Peace Walk. They carried candles, and walked while chanting "peace is every step". The power of unity was evident as the different nationalities came together for a common cause; peace.

The Focus Week seeks to answer all the questions about the real meaning behind flags, history of their creation and evolution. Why do many flags have very similar colors and symbols? Does this show some kind of historic connection? Various intellectual activities, competitions and discussions helped both students and staff to better understand the concept of nationalism and connections between cultures.
