The inauguration of the Nijmegen World Peace Flame Monument took place on October 7th 2010. The monument is situated on a quiet square in front of the Gedachteniskerk, near the ‘Titus Brandsma Memorial’ close to the busy city centre.
The World Peace Flame Monument symbolizes a flame carried by the hands of many people together. Behind the monument is a wall with inspiring proverbs on peace. The beautiful flame lighting ceremony also included contributions from the choir ‘Colourful Nijmegen’ and also from other various international guests.
A unique aspect of the Nigmegen flame is that it is part of a city tourist tour.
