Unity Flag Project at the Peace Pole
“May Peace on Earth Prevail”
The International Festival invites the collaboration of our attendees to help create our very own Harrisonburg International Festival Unity flag to represent our common bond as a human family and our desire to be a community of compassion and friendship that embodies a spirit of good will, mutual respect, and understanding for all. Come add your creative touch, ideas, and talents to this project at the Peace Pole near Shelter 12!
