About the image: Flame of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Memorial at Ueno Toshogu Shrine, Tokyo.
The inscription reads: “We hereby pledge to keep burning the A-bomb flame, convinced that this monument will contribute to strengthening the worldwide people's movement to abolish nuclear weapons and achieve peace, which is the most urgent task for the people across the borders.” This flame was created in 1988 by merging two flames: one taken from a fire started by the original atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and one created by sparks from roof tiles in Nagasaki. This monument to peace was established here in 1989.
