The WorldPeace Banner was
envisioned by John WorldPeace in April 1988. Its purpose is to call attention
to the vision of WorldPeace.
The twelve figures represent all the diverse people of the world.
The word WorldPeace is lettered as if chiseled into stone. This symbolizes
that WorldPeace will be imprinted upon the foundation of the earth and
upon that foundation a new era will begin in which a commitment to WorldPeace
will permeate the world society.
The sun rising above the word WorldPeace has five rays. Five is the symbolic
number of humanity. The sun is midpoint between the word World and the
word Peace. This symbolizes that it is humanity who must bring together
the reality of the World and a vision of Peace to form a new vision of
peace for the future.
The sun also symbolizes an open hand. Many use two fingers to symbolize
Peace. However, the hand has five fingers and the open hand symbolizes
humanity and communicates not just Peace but WorldPeace.
One day a WorldPeace banner of some design will fly above all the flags
of the world. When this happens, we will have subordinated our nationalistic
interests to a commitment to WorldPeace and there will then, in fact,
be Peace on Earth.
