History of The World Peace Flame
The World Peace Flame has been burning since July 1999, when seven flames, lit by eminent peacemakers on five continents, were flown by military and commercial aircraft to the United Kingdom.
On 31st July they were brought together and united into one flame in Bangor, North Wales. It has now been lit in every country of the world. The flame is still being passed from person to person and lit by thousands of people daily as a dedication to peace. The now legendary World Peace Flame, a universal symbol for global peace and unity, is bringing hope to millions of people worldwide. ‘The World Peace Flame unites ancient and modern cultures by expressing the fundamental aspirations of both – the hope for peace.’ Former Federal Minister, Australia
