Imagine Peace, 2017 by Yoko Ono

IMAGINE PEACE is a concept born from Yoko Ono and John Lennon’s tireless work as peace activists, beginning with their 1973 proposal of ‘Nutopia,’ a world without borders. Since its inception, Ono has manifested IMAGINE PEACE in over 24 languages, as billboards, posters, newspaper advertisements, badges, tweets, and countless other media, to share this message of peace with the global community. In 2007 Ono created the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER on Viðey Island off the coast of Reykjavík, Iceland, a tower of beaming light, which represents wisdom and love, and acts as a beacon for all those wishing to contribute to world peace. This flag continues Ono’s ever-growing peace campaign, perhaps now more timely than ever.
