The World Peace Flame
The World Peace Flame is a symbol of peace, unity, freedom and celebration. We believe in the essential freedom of the human spirit to create peace at any time under any circumstances – a view endorsed by the millions of people who have lit The World Peace Flame as a symbol of this dream.
We aim to inspire people everywhere that the individual plays a crucial role in creating peace at every level.
The World Peace Flame is dedicated to achieving peace through a process of education and the practical support of grassroots peace initiatives. We aim to inspire people everywhere that the individual plays a crucial role in creating peace at every level. Our dream is as simple as it is ambitious: to light an eternally burning World Peace Flame in every major city or decision-making centre in the world. It is a dream we’ve cherished since 1999 when we created our first Flames of Peace on five continents around the world.
We then flew each flame to Wales and combined them to create the World Peace Flame. This unique event showed an extraordinary level of goodwill and generosity on the part of all participants, including the military and commercial airlines that carried the flames to the United Kingdom. Today World Peace Flames burn in thousands of homes, schools, workplaces, hospitals and places of worship around the world. The number of World Peace Flames continues to grow as we present international decision makers with flames, as well as installing flames in monuments in major cities worldwide.
