3642 Frieden

This minor planet is named after the German word for peace, in a reference to the Roman goddess of peace Pax. It was so named in hope of peace around the world.

The symbol of this minor planet is based on the symbol for 14 Irene, except instead of an olive branch and an asteroidal star, the stem of a capital Latin letter F is in the dove's beak, and the horizontal lines above are closely-spaced to occupy the same area that the star did.
