21 September is World Peace Day.
The International Day of Peace, also known as World Peace Day, is observed every year (since 1982) on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence.
To inaugurate the day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at the UN Headquarters (in New York City). The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents except Africa, and the inscription on its side reads, “Long live absolute world peace”.
The mosaics below are on benches that stand outside the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands.
Here’s to enduring peace.
