Peace Poles are handcrafted monuments erected the world over as an international symbol of peace. They are four-sided and approximately eight feet tall. When "planted" in concrete in front of a school or library, they stand six feet tall. There are thousands of peace poles worldwide. They are made of fiberglass or metal with a hollow core.
Participants have the opportunity to write personal messages and thoughts of peace and harmony. These messages are encapsulated within the pole. On each side of the pole are four languages depicting the same, "May Peace Prevail on Earth" message. Their purpose is to spread that message and to act as a constant reminder for us to visualize and pray for world peace.
Peace begins in the hearts and minds of each individual. As we learn to honor each other, our environment, animals and all creation on earth, the vision of global peace through sincere communication will gradually become a natural way of life. By igniting the flame of international friendship through the constant reminder, "May Peace Prevail on Earth," we can stimulate a shift in attitudes in all areas of planetary work -- political, economical, environmental and social.
The Peace Pole Project is a non-profit, "grassroots" movement. We invite you to join in the worldwide effort to bring this powerful message of peace to the people of all lands.
