October 17 is World Day for Overcoming Poverty
I learned of an international day for overcoming poverty, "October 17, the World Day for Overcoming Poverty," from a free ebook "Artisans of Peace Overcoming Poverty," by Diana Faujour Skelton, published by the non-profit organization the International Movement ATD Fourth World. One way that the country of Guatemala celebrates the World Day for Overcoming Poverty is by choosing a citizen to take part in their national White Rose of Peace ceremony.  The daily ceremony was begun at the end of the country's 36 year long civil war to show the country's hope for ongoing peace. [p 20, 29-32, Artisans of Peace Overcoming Poverty]
A white rose for peace.

This book is the first edition of a three part series.
Maybe a peach rose can also be for peace. Peace is in many colors. (Note: I happened to have this image when I first wrote this post, but later went and bought the only white rose at the florist and took images that didn't turn out great but - peace is worth it.)
