September 21, 1982 marked the first celebration of the United Nation's International Day of Peace. It is celebrated yearly, and is a day specifically dedicated to the absence of war. At the start of the day, the "Peace Bell" is rung at the UN. The side of the bell is inscribed with the words "Long live absolute world peace." Those celebrating the day often wear badges in the shape of doves.
