It's the Japanese way of saying peace, literally putting the characters in the incorrect order. In Chinese, it should be 和平, not 平和. Japanese took everything Chinese and call it their own, but in order to call it their own, sometimes they inverse the order to make it different from Chinese, no matter what direction it's read in.
