2007: Verdenskort over Global Peace Index

Fredsindekset ((engelsk): Global Peace Index) er et forsøg på at måle fredeligheden i et land eller region. Indekset beregnes af The Economist, et internationalt panel af fredseksperter fra fredsinstitutter og tænketanke, sammen med Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Sydney, Australien. Listen blev etableret i maj 2007, og hævdes at være det første studie som rangerer lande over hele verden i henhold til deres fredelighed. Studiet er den australske iværksætter Steve Killeleas idé og er støttet af personer som Dalai Lama, ærkebiskop Desmond Tutu, og tidligere præsident Jimmy Carter. Faktorer undersøgt af forfatterne omfatter interne faktorer som vold og kriminalitet i landet, samt landenes eksterne relationer som militærudgifter og krige.

På listen for 2014 ligger Danmark på andenpladsen.[1]

Flag of Taiwan proposed 1996.svg
This is the Proposed flag of Taiwan favoured by some supporters and activists of the Taiwan Independence Movement. However, there is no consensus opinion that this flag should be the official representation of Taiwan, in the event that Taiwan should officially declare its independence in the future.

Currently, since Taiwan is a de facto independent state under the official name Republic of China (ROC), the official flag of Republic of China is still commonly used by the majority of Taiwanese people. The Taiwan government as of 2006, even though ruled by the pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party, was still using the official ROC flag (which can be seen at Image:Flag of the Republic of China.svg).

This proposed flag should be used with caution, and only when it is intentional and specific to indicate something related to the Taiwan Independence Movement. For other routinely common usage to represent Taiwan at the present time, use the official flag of Republic of China.
