BOSTON — Hundreds have gathered at the country's oldest public park to try to set a Guinness world record for the largest human peace symbol.

At around noon Saturday, 1,682 people reportedly assembled in a circular formation, holding up the "V'' hand sign for peace, on Boston Common.

The gathering failed to set a record— it needed more than 5,000 people.

But organizers say the event was mostly aimed at highlighting the work of Children's Services of Roxbury, a statewide organization that provides social services to children and families.

Participants tell The Boston Globe they wanted to be a part of something good and "help promote peace."
