Peaceful Flat Mousepad
"Tian, My sister has found this mouse pad on sale on Futureshop.ca. My understanding is that 和平 means 'peace'. But 平 alone means 'even' level; flat'! Cheers, Angela"
Even though 平 is commonly translated as "peace", but technically it only means "flat" or "balanced".
The phrase for "peace" is 和平; and sometimes in Japanese, 平和.
平 = flat; level; equal; to make the same score; to tie; to draw; calm; peaceful
平 【ひら】 (n) the broad; the flat; palm; ED
