Flagstaff, Traveling, and Other Peace Poles From Around the World
When you plant a Peace Pole in your community, you are linking with people all over the world who have planted Peace Poles in the same spirit of peace. Every Peace Pole proclaims the intention “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in the language of the country and often several other languages as well. Peace Poles can be found on all the continents around the world.
In 2018 a 12 foot steel Peace Pole was permanently installed and dedicated in downtown Flagstaff at Heritage Square. At night an Interior light emphasizes the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth: in these languages: English, Hopi. Dine, Spanish, sign language and Japanese (where Peace Poles originated). The Peace Pole will be rededicated on September 21.
