Yellow Flag Art Competition 2017/18

A great opportunity for your school and students to creatively engage with the themes of the Yellow Flag and to really get students thinking about how they feel about them and the sort of Ireland in which they'd like to live.   This year we have two categories - one for schools currently pursuing their Yellow Flag, and one for those who have already achieved it. The creative themes for the our Yellow Flag Contenders are: "Diverse but Equal", "Standing up to Racism", "Valuing Traveller Ethnicity and Culture" and for our Yellow Flag Flyers: "Our Intercultural School".

In the past we have received a huge variety of pictures, drawings, painting collages, mosaics, tapestries, murals, cartoon, computer generated images, textiles, sculptures, stencils and audio visual entries can be seen here:

The Yellow Flag Programme is a fantastic initiative which seeks to bring the issues of interculturalism, equality and diversity into the whole-school programme and allows schools to apply them to the day to day running of the school. Moreover, Yellow Flag also promotes the idea of parents and the community working in conjunction with students and educators in order to ensure that the benefits of the programme are not just confined to the classroom.
