A Peace Pole is an internationally-recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of humankind for peace on earth. Each pole says May Peace Prevail on Earth in different languages on multiple sides. Globally, there are >250,000 Peace Poles – a presence in every country. Planting a Peace Pole is a way of bringing people together to inspire, awaken and uplift the human consciousness. Peace Poles remind us to think, speak and act in the spirit of peace and harmony. As part of Rotary’s centenary celebrations, Rotarians are placing Peace Poles in parks, schools, public and private properties throughout Australia – aiming for more than 100.

The Woolloongabba Peace Pole has 8 sides with the languages representing the First People of the area and the later multi-national and -cultural settlers.
