The Peace Flag is an initiative that aims to unify all nations underneath one common symbol on International Peace Day.
While there are various icons of peace – the olive branch, the dove – there is no official world flag of peace adopted by the United Nations. That’s why we have proposed that, for one day a year on 21st September, every country raises an all-white version of their national flag to represent that we all one.
The initiative was nominated in 2012 at D&AD for its contribution towards peace, in support of Peace One Day.
In 2013, embassies of Colombia, Equatorial Guinea and Ecuador in London officially agreed to support The Peace Flag initiative by raising a colourless version of their respective flags on September 21st.
