Greek schoolchildren make biggest paper dove on record

Some 45,000 students from elementary, middle and high schools all over Greece made a 3,000-square meter white dove on a blue background out of 280,000 paper boats at the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first Modern Olympic Games were held, in central Athens on Friday.

The project, which will be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records, was part of Olympic Education Day, an annual event aimed at raising awareness about the Olympic Ideals.
