Sunflowers ~ International Symbol of Peace

June 4 is SUNFLOWER PEACE DAY

“Sunflowers have become the symbol of a world free of nuclear weapons. After Ukraine gave up its last nuclear warhead, the Defense Ministers of the US, Russia and Ukraine met on a former Ukrainian missile base, June 4, 1996. They celebrated by scattering sunflower seeds and planting sunflowers. Former US Secretary of Defense William Perry said, ‘Sunflowers instead of missiles in the soil will ensure peace for future generations.'” Nuclear Age Peace Foundation
