The Center for Peace through Culture’s annual Banner of Peace Award is one of the important ways in which CPC joins with peacemakers across the globe in promoting a culture of peace. The award recognizes visionary individuals and organizations making outstanding contributions to fostering a culture of peace in their communities, and around the world.
The award is named after the Banner of Peace, which was created by Nicholas Roerich, a noted peace builder, painter, writer, and statesman in the 1930s and adopted internationally as a way to identify and protect cultural treasures in times of war.
The three dots in a circle represent the art, science, and philosophy of all cultures co-existing in beauty, truth, and harmony. Today, for CPC, this symbol also represents the integration of Body, Mind, and Spirit, and our mission of promoting peace within the individual, the community, and the world.
