The Flagstaff Peace Day Mission

Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration aims to inform the communities of Northern Arizona about the U.N. designation of September 21 as the International Day of Peace; and to join Peace One Day by encouraging everyone to live the theme “Who Will You Make Peace With?” 

Our Vision

A world in which People Everywhere Are Caring for Everyone (P.E.A.C.E.) by making peace with each other, expressing peace through Education, Music, Film, Sport, Dance, and Art.  People live in peace through respect, understanding, and tolerance.

Our Goal

To highlight Northern Arizona as a region that values and embraces peace.

How Do You Make Peace?

Every year The International Day of Peace has a theme. This year the theme is ‘Climate Action for Peace’ which reflects our world’s imperative need for immediate action to address the Climate Crisis. Every year since 1981 the world has sought to further the commitment to peace around the globe.

Helping Others

Learn how others are helping their neighbors, community, schools, and more.

Peace Poles

Peace Poles are a monument to those dedicated to helping others. See Peace Poles around Flagstaff and the world or learn how to make your own.


There are numerous organizations and communities around the world in need of financial help. We are working to make this happen. Stay tuned and contact us for more information in the meantime.


Some of our Peacemakers seek to donate their time to encourage peace. See the stories, share your own, or find out how you can create new stories of peacemaking.

What is the Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration?

The original organizers for the Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration first convened in December of 2013 in an effort to support the International Peace Day Celebration initiative created by the United Nations in 1981. Other peacemakers and community members of Flagstaff joined shortly thereafter in the effort to promote peace in Flagstaff and throughout Northern Arizona with donations of time, resources, and talent, as well as sharing community activities and information to encourage respect, tolerance, and understanding of each other regardless of our differences.

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on September 21. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

Why a Peace Frog?

Live Fun Do Good

The frog is internationally recognized as an icon of peace and good luck and this specific icon is the logo for the Peace Frogs company who also adopted it’s message.

‘”Peace Frogs is not icons or products, but really a state of mind.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Peace Frogs is a full line of clothing, designed to help promote positive and optimistic thinking throughout the world.

Peace Frogs does not represent any form of activism; rather, we are aware that now, perhaps more than ever, our entire planet needs some positively peaceful feelings. We care about the environment, but we care about people too. Customers are always telling us stories about what Peace Frogs means to them: its more than just a piece of clothing, it’s an icon of hope and happiness. 

Be Positively Peaceful,
The Frog ‘
