The Japanese Peace Bell is a United Nations peace symbol. Cast on November 24, 1952, it was an official gift of the Japanese people to the United Nations on June 8, 1954. The symbolic bell of peace was donated by Japan  to  the United Nations  at a  time when Japan had not yet been officially

admitted to the United Nations.  The Japanese Peace Bell

was presented to the United Nations by the

United Nations Association of Japan.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres

2020 Message

The International Day of Peace is devoted to urging warring parties everywhere to lay down their weapons and work for harmony.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the world, this call is more important than ever. That is why I appealed for a global ceasefire in March.

Our world faces a common enemy: a deadly virus that is causing immense suffering, destroying livelihoods, contributing to international tensions and exacerbating already formidable peace and security challenges.

The focus of this year’s International Day of Peace is “Shaping Peace Together.”

In that spirit, and to mark our 75th anniversary, the United Nations is bringing people together for a global conversation about shaping our future and forging peace in trying times.

In these days of physical distancing, we may not be able to stand next to one another. But we must still stand together for peace.

And, together, I know we can — and will — build a more just, sustainable and equitable world.

António Guterres
