Israel has celebrated its independence each year since its creation in 1948. This year is its 67th year of independence. Each year a selected artist creates a picture to represent a certain part of Israel and its independence. One picture in particular stood out to our group, the picture from 1977. This picture shows a skyline of Jerusalem and a white dove with an olive branch flying over the city with several other figures and shapes on top of a red fabric. This picture in particular stood out to us because it manifested on the of the three main points of Israeli Independence: Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish nation (Jews in Israel and throughout the rest of the world). It also showed the majesty and beauty of Jerusalem as a city; and the white dove represents the eternal peace over our capital city.
