Flag Ceremony at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY-USA

November 18, 2009

Staff members, Jim Dugan, Linda Gebbia and Ann Marie Williams of The World Peace Sanctuary were asked to present a World Peace Flag Ceremony.

Hundreds of students gathered in the student lounge at Vassar College in celebration of the annual gathering, Kaleidoscope!

This event started 5 years ago by the Vassar International Student Association and the Office for International Services to embrace diversity and celebrate one another. Approximately 10% of the students who attend are from over 60 countries!

An international theme was presented from culinary cuisine to entertainment.

The colorful display of UN member state flags was the added touch that served as a presentation to the introduction of the procession of flags that began the evening’s Program. Each student carried a flag, and then said a few words about the country they are from, closing with the message and prayer May Peace Prevail On Earth!
