Aung San Soo Kyi
Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Soo Kyi, center, gives a speech beneath the fighting-peacock banner that symbolized the 8888 Uprising. The 8888 Uprising (named for the date on which it reached its peak, August 8, 1988) was a major series of democratic protests in Myanmar. Today, the fighting peacock emblem is the flag of Soo Kyi's political party, the National League for Democracy.
