What does Pace mean in my "sign off" on my blog?

Above is the flag.

Here is the explanation. I saw it first when on pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela last year.



Italian "PACE" Flag

A Universal Symbol of Peace & Solidarity

“Pace” (pronounced PAH-chay) means peace in Italian. This universal symbol of peace, solidarity, sister & brotherhood was hung from millions of homes and workplaces all over Italy (and beyond) prior to the war against Iraq. This flag has become quite popular all over the European Union and US.

Approx. dimensions: 3ft x 4ft 2in. Printed on lightweight polyester for limited outdoor use. The flag has a full length sleeve on the 3-foot side for attaching the flag to a pole or other support. No grommets. Imported from Italy.
