Lesson 2

Every country in the world has its own distinctive traditions, culture and language. Your island currently has no identity, and now’s the time to start creating one.

In this lesson, you will design a national flag and a national anthem.

The national flag of a country can often have a deep meaning and hold symbolic significance for the people of a nation. 

Design your own flag for your island - what is the story behind your flag?

You also need to think of some national anthem lyrics to symbolise your island. Use the work you did last week on the BBC's poetry lessons to help you!

Your Lyrics could relate to…

•your island’s landscape;

•your island’s history;

•your island’s values or a country motto;


•the person who discovered your island… you!
