The symbol commonly associated with a truce is the "White Flag". The white flag has historically been used as a universal symbol of surrender or a request for a temporary cessation of hostilities. When a white flag is raised or displayed during a conflict, it indicates a desire for a truce or ceasefire, allowing for negotiations, the exchange of prisoners, or the evacuation of wounded individuals.
The white flag serves as a signal to opposing parties that the intention is to temporarily halt aggressive actions and seek a peaceful resolution. While the white flag is primarily associated with wartime situations, it can also be used in other contexts to represent a temporary pause in conflicts or disputes.
