Peace Flag to Be Raised On Top of Mount Ararat

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Yevgeny Gviniashvili–a Georgian who founded and heads the ‘Peace Standard-Bearer’ international organization–has arrived in Yerevan to seek support of Armenian authorities to realize a project the aim of which is to raise the Peace Flag in Yerevan.

According to Gviniashvili–he has been involved in this program for fifteen years and has managed to hoist the flag in the South Pole–in the space and numerous cities in the world.

This September 2 Gviniashvili intends to hold an action which will be devoted to the 55th anniversary of the end of World War II.

It will start in Jerusalem–after which the Flag will be hoisted in many other countries–including Yerevan. An arrangement has been already made on it with the mayor of Yerevan Albert Bazeyan Gviniashvili said he is negotiating with the Armenian authorities on holding a festival "Miss World Standard-Bearer" in Yerevan.

Gviniashvili also plans to raise the ‘peace flag’ on top of Mountain Ararat–where the dove–the symbol of peace–appeared first. As he said–it was the wish of the late Catholicos of all Armenia’s Vazgen I.

On returning to Tbilisi–he will leave for Ankara to negotiate with Turkish authorities. He is sure that the answer will be positive–as Turkey’s ambassador to Georgia gave his liking to the association’s activities.

Gviniashvili wishes that the flags were raised at the same time in Yerevan and on the top of Ararat–as it would be the first time the two flags will face one another.
