A social media movement to support the Iran deal on Saturday produced some pretty great photos from around the world.
Support Iran Deal, a politically unaffiliated group of volunteers that organized it, wanted a grassroots movement to raise awareness on the agreement.

Part of that plan was to organize a global social media campaign — the organization gained support of over 100 cities and on Saturday, the hashtag #SupportIranDeal took off.
Around the world, groups gathered and uploaded photos to show support for the deal. While there were many more pictures (most of them from Europe and the US), here are five of the best.
1. Peace Bridge in Calgary, Canada
2. A happy woman about to eat cake in Amsterdam, Netherlands
3. In front of the world's only full-size Gundam statue in Tokyo, Japan
4. Out in the pouring rain in Aachen, Germany
5. A lady in New York who remembers history — and has her fair share of buttons to prove it
