In order to promote peace and communal harmony, a 60-foot Christmas tree has been erected near the city airport.
The ‘Peace Tree’ has a five-foot high star on top, symbolising the need to work for peace, harmony and goodwill among human beings, Bishop William Moses, the chairman of Christmas Celebration for Peace and Communal Harmony, said today.
The tree, claimed to be the tallest in the region, has been made of steel and fitted with 2,000 lights, surrounded by 1,000 green leaves.
The lights were switched on by Mayor R Venkatachalam and the peace tree would be there for 17 days, up to January 6, Moses said.
