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?”
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.
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.
What is the Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration?
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?
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 ‘
