Who Designed it? -- Three simple lines within a circle

Who Designed the Peace Sign? When and Why?

This peace sign was used widely in the 60's to express Peace. It was originally designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom, a design student and activitst from England, to promote PEACE and Nuclear Disarmament.

peace sign origin
The artist used the semaphore letters "N" (Nuclear) and "D" (Disarmament) to create the image.

When Was The Peace Symbol First Introduced?

It was unveiled at a British "ban-the-bomb" rally on April 4, 1958 as an emblem of the anti-Vietnam War movement and became a symbol for all things that were groovy and counterculture. According to its late creator, British graphic designer Gerald Holtom: "I drew myself . . . a man in despair . . . put a circle around it to represent the world."

The symbol has marched in service of many causes over the years: civil rights, women's rights, environmentalism, gay rights, anti-apartheid, the nuclear-freeze movement and the latter-day antiwar crowd.

It continues today, with increased hope for WORLD PEACE!
