This pigeon has come to you. The pigeon was made by a nine year old student, Lara, studying in Unna city's Katharinenschule.

The pigeon is a symbol of 'peace'. After looking at the pigeon for several days, send it to another person or establishment so as to continue world peace. And, send us a mail with your picture. This way, we can follow the 'peace path' of the pigeon. Accordingly, you will contribute to the peace movement of elementary schools in Margaretenhohe Essen, Franziskusschule in Hattingen, Katharinenschule in Unna and schools in Istanbul and Pecs."
