The World Peace Flame Monument represents the steps each person takes for peace.

Bogong moths are shown being drawn to a flame by Ngunnawal artist Jim Williams. Bogong moths migrate through this area each year and were a traditional food source for local aboriginal people. The pole has been situated in Glebe Park since 2001.

It was a gift to the people of Canberra from the Life Foundation in March 2001. There is a message on the plaque at the base of the pole that asks visitors to walk around the monument and make a wish.
