Imagine Peace Tower

For more photos of the Peace Tower and yesterday’s celebration, search the hashtag #imaginepeacetower, follow @visitreykjavik, and check out the Friðarsúlan í Viðey (Imagine Peace Tower) and Viðey location pages.

The Imagine Peace Tower on Viðey Island in Kollafjörður Bay, Iceland, is a memorial to John Lennon from his widow, Yoko Ono. A tall “tower of light” is projected from the tower’s white stone monument that has the words “Imagine Peace” carved into it in 24 languages. On a clear night, the light can reach altitudes of at least 4000 meters. The power for the lights is provided by Iceland’s geo-thermal energy grid.

Yesterday, October 9, was John Lennon’s 72nd birthday. To celebrate, Yoko Ono handed out five LennonOno Grants in Reykjavik, then lit the Peace Tower. You can watch a live webcam of the tower here.
