I believe I gave an example, earlier y = x^2, where the global minimum is 0 at (0, 0)

There are functions that exhibit global maxima and minima such as sine and cosine.
Yeah, f(x) = x² has a global minimum at the origin, f(x) = -x² has a global maximum there...sine and cosine don't have unique global maxima and minima, unless you define them within a specific range.

Does a global maxima have to be unique? I thought it would be fine to say that it has many global maxima, ah well, I guess it depends on how it is defined.
