In celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday next week, over 200 Canadian and International youths came together to create a message of peace and diversity by painting the flags of the world on their faces.

Using makeup as their medium, these creative young people are aiming to inspire mutual understanding and love worldwide. The result is an awe-inspiring 60-second film called the Peace Flag project.

Over the span of a year, and with the help of the faculty and staff at CMU College of Makeup Art & Design, the Peace Flag project came to life.

Pamela Earle, the CMU College President who spearheaded the project, said: “This video was originally inspired out of sympathy, in solidarity with the victims of tragic worldwide events, but it quickly morphed into a message of hope. We can’t think of a better way to mark Canada’s 150th birthday than to share this powerful message and project created by CMU students with the world.”
