Prayer Flag Walk for Peace


Prayer Flag hanging now in the Portsmouth Public Library

Join us as we bring the Seacoast Prayer Flag back to GateWay

Sunday, January 14; 2:30 - 3:15pm
Walk begins at Portsmouth Public Library and concludes in the GateWay parking lot

The Seacoast Prayer Flag, conceived by GateWay students one year ago, has traveled to many locations in the area, including the Newmarket Library, the Rye Library, the Lane Library (Hampton, NH) and the Safe Harbor Recovery Center (Portsmouth, NH) and is now over 200 feet long, representing hundreds of wishes of good will.  For its final journey, the flag, now at its last stop at the Portsmouth Public Library, will be paraded from the library to GateWay on Sunday, January 14, 2018.  We invite one and all to participate in this peaceful walk by meeting in the Portsmouth Public Library lobby beginning at 2:30.  The walking procession will begin at 2:45 and will last about 30 minutes.   All ages are welcome to participate in carrying this symbol of peace across town.  There is still time to add a wish to the flag.  Visit the library lobby before January 10 and look up. 

Prayer flags are intended to be strung up outside where the wind will disperse their messages of peace, compassion, strength and wisdom.  Each time you looks at a prayer flag, it reminds you to continue to send out your own thoughts and wishes for world peace, kindness and generosity. For one month, the Seacoast Prayer Flag will hang outside the Gateway Studio, where it will fade and fray symbolizing the natural passing of all things.  When that happens, the flags are to be burned to release the last of their.

We invite you to join in the ceremonial burning of the flag on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 12:30 pm in the parking lot.  The burning will conclude the Chinese New Year activities scheduled for that morning.
