A Peace Pole is a hand crafted monument which displays the words "MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH" usually in different languages. It is a non political, non religious simple reminder to ourselves and the community. Hundreds of thousands of people all over the planet have planted peace poles. These people, all from different countries, tribes, races and religions all shared a common wish for peace on earth.
Peace Poles can be found on every continent of the world. You can write the words MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH on your pole in any language you like.
When you plant a peace pole in your community you are linking with people all over the world. Peace poles can be planted at home in the garden, in schools, in parks or anywhere you can get permission to put one.
The Peace Pole Project is an official project of the World Peace Prayer Society Headquarters at the World Peace Sanctuary in Wassaic, New York. It is a non-profit, non-sectarian, member supported organization with NGO status at the United Nations. The sole mission of the WPPS is to unite people across the world with the universal peace message MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH.
