These symbols of global peace were gifts from Stone Quakers to the town.

Peter Holland, of Stone Quakers, opened the ceremony with examples of conflict and its aftermath: two world wars, the Easter Rising, the Paris and Brussels bombings, refugees fleeing Syria and Libya.

Councillor Jim Davies, Stone Town Mayor, made reference to the Quaker Testimonies, peace, equality, simplicity and truth. He suggested everyone could get inspiration from the Peace Pole and feel proud to see it included in the Stone Town Trail.  On the Stone Peace Pole the message “May Peace Prevail On Earth” is repeated in Polish, Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu and Braille.
