The Rose Garden was installed in 1992 by The International World Peace Rose Gardens, with the theme: “Peace through Non Violence.” The Garden borders the Peace Plaza, in front of the Visitors’ Center. The starburst design invokes the brilliance of Dr. King’s life and its impact on humankind. The pink roses represent Mrs. Coretta Scott King and her continuation of his work. The band of red roses that weaves through the garden honors African Americans’ contributions to USA & world history. The solid bands of white roses honor the special bond and similarity of peace movements between King and Gandhi. Multi-colored roses symbolize nations of the world and the appeal of King’s message. Plaques were written by Atlanta Public School students, and unveiled April 2008
