Conférence La Bannière de la paix face à la perte du Sacré – Grand Orient de Suisse

Je remercie d’entrée les organisateurs de cette manifestation culturelle pour me permettre de présenter en quelques mots Le Cercle International de la Bannière de la Paix de Genève et Pax Cultura France que je représente.

Celles-ci ont pour vocation de promouvoir la Bannière de la Paix qui fut adoptée en 1933 à Washington sous le nom de son instigateur « Pacte Roerich » puis reprise en 1954 sous le nom du Traité de la Haye pour la protection du Patrimoine culturel International.

 

Notre leitmotiv est : « La Culture au service de la Paix » thème en total harmonie avec le sujet qui nous réunit aujourd’hui.
