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 for a White Pencil in 2012 at D&AD for its contribution towards peace.
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.
