Baltimore artist Pablo Machioli decided he wanted to create a message of peace and so invited people to participate in a Human Flag of Peace. He explained the idea was to bring people together and have fun while thinking about peace.

Last Sunday, August 3rd, dozens of city residents of all ages converged on Patterson Park. On the hillside below the Pagoda participants laid down on the grass. Pablo and his fellow artists arranged folks into a gigantic human peace symbol. Then all the artists then moved around painting folks in a rainbow of colors.

As you can see, participants enjoyed a colorful, peaceful afternoon.
