A Peace Pole is an international symbol of Peace. Peace Poles display the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” usually include the saying in the language of the country where it has been placed, and usually three to seven additional translations. May Peace Prevail On Earth is an inclusive universal message and referred to as an affirmation of peace. Peace Poles are intended to inspire unity among people of all cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
