Peace Poles

Record #:
A project begun in Japan in the aftermath of WWII has become an international endeavor, with 180,000 peace poles erected in 180 countries. As for the profiled pole, Peace Pole Number 1 in Rowan County, it came to represent the international pursuit of war’s cessation on a small scale. The English equivalent of “May Peace Prevail on Earth” on the pole in Salisbury’s City Park dedicated in 2007 is also inscribed in Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese.
