Last year Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Brazil, New Zealand and Belize raised the Flag of Peace and Freedom for the first time on the International Day of Peace. Other participating countries have included: Albania, Armenia, Austria, The Bahamas, The Cook Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Hungary, Jordan, Kiribati, Malta, Morocco, Nauru, The Northern Mariana Islands, the US. Virgin Islands, The British Virgin Islands, Saint Lucia, Vanuatu, the United States of America, Peru, South Africa, Egypt, and The United Kingdom bringing the total to 29 countries who have participated in this effort since 1988. 3Imagine if, one day, all the Nations of the World declared Peace and Freedom for all their People! Imagine if the Leaders of all the Nations of the World encouraged their people to look up and realize that we all live under the same sky, are warmed by the same sun, marvel at the flight of the birds . . . that we all share the Earth and the responsibility to keep it alive for future generations . . . all the People of the World sharing a moment dedicated to the ideals of Peace and Freedom.2
The Flag of Peace and Freedom was designed in 1984 and the Flag of Peace Organization was founded in 1988 by Daniel Koffman. The images on the Flag he designed depict two birds soaring as the sun pierces the gray clouds and shines down on the world . . . images of Peace and Freedom that all people can share, transcending words which can so often be misunderstood.
Every year, for the past fourteen years, Koffman has corresponded with the Leaders and representatives of all the Nations of the World asking that they request and fly the Flag of Peace and Freedom, sent at no charge, somewhere in their Nation’s Capital City on the International Day of Peace.
Imagine the Flag of Peace and Freedom flying over all the Nations of the World . . . all the People of the World sharing in a moment dedicated to the ideals of Peace and Freedom . . . What could happen next?
