The World Peace Flag
3x5' brilliantly dyed polyester finished with heading and grommets
Created by James Van Kirk a Methodist minister from Youngstown, OH who took it around the world twice between WWI and WWII to promote the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God. He felt it was his life's mission to make the design known to nations and give it to mankind as a sign from God. The Universal Peace Congress adopted the flag in 1913.
He wrote that the design came to him by revelation from God as he thought what design and colors a world flag would have. It could not be left to man but would be found in natural law or be provided by God. The color laws of light furnish an appropriate basis for a world flag. The white light of the sun in passing through drops of rain forms the rainbow. The reunited colors produce white as seen in the band on the globe. The colors symbolize many nations, races, languages and sects. It also shows there is a harmony and brotherhood among the variations of the human family. They flow together producing a band of white encircling the earth as they represent the nations and peoples cooperating to make peace. The band of white, representing truth, brotherhood, harmony and peace will widen, as nations are more fraternal. Blue field represents the heavens suggesting we are all embraced in universal law and truth. Stars represent Nations.
