DHA photoA group of 460 people managed to enter the Guinness Book of World Records on Aug. 30 after joining forces in Turkey’s northwestern province of Bursa to form the world’s biggest floating peace sign.
The group, which came together in Bursa’s Mudanya municipality on Aug. 30 as part of Turkey’s 93rd Victory Day celebrations, entered the Marmara Sea from the Kumyaka beach, formed the peace sign and remained still in the water for five minutes in order to secure the record.
Their attempt was registered as the “world’s biggest peace sign” by the Guinness representative in Turkey, referee Şeyda Subaşı Gemici.
Gemici presented the record registration document to Mudanya Mayor Hayri Türkyılmaz after the successful attempt.
Commenting on the event, Türkyılmaz invited all people in the world to be more sensitive toward “peace.”
Previously, the Guinness World Record for the biggest floating peace sign was set in Jordan, where 262 people remained floating for nearly 10 minutes off the shore of the Dead Sea in 2014.
