Rising from its base of gravel and stone, the peg symbolises the connections, unity and solidarity of the human family.  Supported by the peg is a planet where ethnicities, cultures and religions, despite their differences, merge together in the essence of our human existence.

Launched on 2 March 2013 by His Excellency Mr Pedro Monzón Barata, Ambassador of the Republic of Cuba, and Ms Joy Burch MLA, ACT Minister for the Arts.
