The Peace Symbol Celebrated A 50th Birthday!

peace symbol

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 andf 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.

The PEACE SYMBOL was 50 on - April 4, 2008

No matter where you are in the world, the PEACE SIGN can be seen more than ever!

The peace symbol -- three simple lines within a circle

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!
