    This panel is part of a set of three, created for the Frederick Street Quaker Meeting House in Belfast to mark the 350th Anniversary, in 2004 of Quakerism coming to Ireland.

    This first panel, representing Quakerism and peace, shows the dove as a symbol of peace and some words from the Quaker Peace Testimony. The green olive branches around the border represent peace.

    The panels were designed and created by Patsy Browne. With Patsy's encouragement, everyone in the entire Meeting contributed to the stitching of the borders of the panels.
