Doves of peace
Description:
The dove is considered a symbol of peace. The Dove of Peace has both religious symbolism and political symbolism in peace movements in the world.
Expanded Description:
In today's world in which violence and war are spreading on our planet, the desire for world peace is growing and peace movements are flourishing. The Peace Dove expresses the hope, desire and demand for international understanding and peace between people, countries, and cultures.

The dove is also an important Biblical symbol. In the story of the Great Flood, an angry God instructed Noah to build an Ark and take male and female pairs of animals and “righteous men and women” aboard. When the Ark was complete, God sent a great flood that drowned all other humans and animals -- an act of complete destruction before re-creation. 

As the Ark floated on the sea, Noah released a dove from the Ark to search for land. The dove returned to the Ark with a fresh olive branch, proof of dry land. The return of the dove with the olive branch is therefore interpreted as a symbol of God making peace with man, after God promised not to send another flood or catyclism against his people. (Gen 8,11 EU)

Ever since, the Dove of Peace has been a part of human culture, as this story exists in some form in all the major monotheistic religions of the world.

In 1955 Pablo Picasso received the World Peace Prize for his silhouette drawing of a Dove of Peace, by then a symbol of peace and peace movements across the world. Here are 88 examples distributed across the globe.

What we are looking for:

- Permanent locations of peace doves with olive branches, because they represent the essence of peace.

- Permanent locations of peace doves related to peace movements (white dove on blue background)

- Permanent locations of peace doves without olive branches, but with some clear connection to concepts of peace. For example: a white dove at a church named "Peace Church", or a sculpture of a dove with a sign or online of its association with peace or a peace movement.

The images of the peace doves must be permanent and in fixed locations (buildings, monuments, firmly anchored signs, etc.). Non-permanent peace doves (on protest signs for example) or stamps with the symbol of the peace dove would not be accepted. Doves released at events are also not allowed.

Update 11/4/2017: We do NOT accept doves that symbolize the Holy Spirit. The only exceptions are the doves listed in the list of the 88 Peace Monuments. But this must be explicitly mentioned in the long description!

Only one dove of peace is allowed per waymarked object.  If many doves of peace occur in one site, they must be grouped together into one waymark.  For example:  Peace Doves of Sacred Heart Cathedral, Houston TX, USA , or Peace Doves of Thanksgiving Square, Dallas TX, USA.

Instructions for Posting a Doves of peace Waymark:

- The Coordinates must be obtained by a personal visit to the site and should be taken at the dove.

- At least two photos for a new Waymark are required. One photo should be a close-up, with the details (such as the olive branch) clearly visible.  The second photo should show the dove in its surroundings. A photo of an information sign about the dove would be welcomed, but is not required.

- Please describe the shape of the dove and which kind of dove it is (with or without olive branch, etc.).  Explain any special or unique significance of this dove.

- Please include the materials used in this dove, and the name of any artist (if known).

- A long description of at least three sentences is required.

- Naming format: Name of the place or thing – City, State/Province, Country.

- We recognize Waymarking is a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks. However, all Waymarks must have an English translation in each section.
