|International Day of Peace observances
21 September, New Zealand
On International Day of Peace in 2005, a group gathered at the Peace Sculpture in the centre of the city of Wanganui, beneath the Culture of Peace Banner, to participate in a moment of silence as a contribution to the global International Day of Peace Vigil.
People throughout the world are today participating in a silent Peace Vigil, beginning at Noon local time.
On International Day of Peace in 2006, as church bells rang out, a group gathered for a silent Vigil at 12 noon at the Peace Sculpture in the centre of the city of Wanganui, beneath the Culture of Peace Banner.
Later in the Day, at 5 PM, a group gathered for an inter faith celebration. With the Peace Banner prominently displayed leaders of different faiths led prayers. In this image the Jewish representative is leading the prayer, while the Muslim representative, sitting beneath the Banner, listens.
