In April 2004, protests against national defence forces' taking part in the Iraq campaign took place in Japan. In TV reports from these protests, broadcasted in Serbia by the RTS 1 channel on 9 April 2004, Italian peace flags were seen. The colour pattern was: purple, dark blue, light blue, green, yellow, orange and red; white inscription PEACE was over light blue and green. English word PEACE was used instead of the original Italian word PACE, probably because it is more familiar to the Japanese people, which might be true for some other cases of its use.

The color pattern is: dark blue, light blue, very light blue, green, yellow, orange and red; white word PEACE is over very light blue and green. Dark blue inclines towards both purple and intermediate blue, light blue inclines towards cyan, very light blue and green are lighter and yellow is darker than on most of similar flags seen elsewhere.
