    Portrait of Atatürk

    In the classroom

    As we entered Zehra's school there was a portrait of Atatürk in the hall. And in every classroom of the school, in the front, there was one portrait as well.
    In Turkey you will see portrait, or statues, of Atatürk everywhere in official buildings and in city squares.

    The Flag

    Outside the school

    I went with Zehra to the school where she works. She told me that every Monday morning all schoolchildren gather in the schoolyard, they sing the national hymn and fly the flag. Every Friday, before going home, they gather again in the schoolyard, sing the national hymn and take the flag down. How different from Sweden!
