Peace Kanji

There seem to be a number of different kanji for the word Peace. Can anybody tell me the meaning of the kanji pictured here? Is it generally used to mean Peace?

Re: Peace Kanji

It's not the usual kanji for peace. Maybe a good way to think of it is "at ease." The Chinese reading is Kou, Japanese: ko, michi, yasu and yasushi. The first word that I think would spring to mind for most people would be kenkou 健康 meaning ‘health'.

Kind regards

Carl

Thank you. The most likely associations are probably the ones I'm looking for. I found these links which seems more to the point.
