National Peace Academy President, Dot Maver, serves on the Board of Directors with the Nicholas Roerich Museum in NYC. In October she traveled to Moscow with Aida Tulskaya, Assistant Director of the Museum, where they participated in the 75th Anniversary Summit of the signing of the Roerich Pact and Banner of Peace International Treaty (1935 in Washington DC, see photo) at the State Museum of Oriental Art.

Banner of PeaceIn the words of Nicholas Roerich, “Wherever the Banner is displayed, it recognizes the great achievements of the past, the present, and the future. It encourages each person to take responsibility for the evolution of the planet; it signifies the peace-builder; and it symbolizes the transformation of the individual and of society. It represents cooperation – the cornerstone of the emerging planetary culture – in all aspects of human activity.”
