One of many highlights during the celebration of Victory Day on 6 October was a series of festive ceremonies—starting in New Zealand and continuing in countries around the world—to raise the flag of Invincibility. The global wave of flagraisings celebrated the rise of an invincible state of ideal life in peace, progress, and happiness, based on the total knowledge of Natural Law.
At the end of the celebration in MERU, Holland, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, honoured by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, raised the flag in front of Maharishi's Peace Palace.
In other countries, teachers and administrators of organizations offering the Transcendental Meditation Programme raised the flag at noon in each location.
In several countries, flags were raised on land at the auspicious centre of the nation—called the Brahmasthan in Vedic city planning—to bring maximum support of Natural Law for peace, progress, and good fortune for the whole country.
In Erfurt, Germany, foundation stones for the first Peace Palace in the country to be built according to Maharishi Vastu architecture were placed at the time of the flagraising ceremony.
In an address on Victory Day, 12 October 2005, Maharishi explained the significance of raising the flag:
'It indicates that that which is achieved on the ground is real and can even be seen flying in the sky. It establishes its reality. It is a symbol of the reality which is on the ground and also in the air, in the sky. So it takes away the difference between, or the distance between, the ground and the sky. That means that which was far away before, now has come to be grounded.
'A flag is a very beautiful symbol of achievement and the universality of the principles that are on the ground. That is why every government has a flag. Government governs from the ground, but the governing process is not only limited to the ground; it is also seen in the air, in the sky, in the empty space.
'A flag is a good symbol that connects the concrete with the abstract. Raising the flag means putting together the concrete and the abstract. That means that it is the ultimate achievement of Unity—unmanifest and manifest values.' —Maharishi, 12 October 2005
