A Peace Pole is a monument that displays the message "May Peace Prevail On Earth” in the language of the country where it is placed. It usually displays 3 to 7 additional languages meaningful to the host site.
The message is referred to as an affirmation of peace and its placement furthers Rotary's goal of building a culture of peace throughout the world.
Peace Poles are intended to inspire unity among people of all cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds. We recommend a Peace Pole ceremony to accompany the planting of each pole and this ceremony can be held annually. Many prefer the International Day of Peace, September 21, for such an occasion
It is estimated there are over 250,000 Peace Poles, in every country in the world, dedicated as monuments to peace. We welcome you planting your community Peace Pole and we will put it on our Rotary Peace Poles Map.
We know you love peace!
We hope you are inspired by
