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:

Education is one of the most important means of combating racism and developing a more inclusive, intercultural society in Ireland. The Yellow Flag programme offers teachers, students and the local community an ideal opportunity to shape and influence how the school works, how the teachers interact with the students and their parents and how students interact with one another and their teachers. The Yellow Flag should be an aspiration for all schools and I look forward to working with the Irish Traveller Movement to make this a reality.”
