John Lennon Memorial in Iceland

This question is language related, but is also sort of music related.

There's a new Lennon light memorial called the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland, whcih was unveiled on Oct. 9.

http://www.imaginepeace.com/

Around it's base are the words "imagine peace" in 24 languages. I wondered what the languages were, and how they picked which 24 languages they would use. My friend said that as this was a Lennon memorial, there would be some significance to the number 24. But I looked through the website and googled news articles and didn't see anything.

Anyone know what the 24 languages are, and why they limited it to 24? They would easily have room for a 100 languages, or 400 or 500.
