I make the following claim: Berkeley is the peace symbol/flag/pole capital of the world. Go ahead, prove me wrong.
We have peace walls, public and private. And we have big symbols all over the place, on houses, on businesses. We’re all about peace.
We fly peace flags. The international PACE flag, the UN flag, our old hippie flag, Buddhist peace prayer flags. All over the place.
John Lennon. Mario Savio. Country Joe. We honor them and their desire for peace.
We do not limit ourselves to large displays of the peace symbol. We have smaller symbols here, there, and everywhere.
We have all over the City. Some official, some not. Many languages. Some have 4, some have 8, some have 16. One as American Sign Language. May Peace Prevail on Earth.
