PEACE SYMBOL - 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Give the Gift of Peace

One of the most instantly recognized images in the world--the peace sign--celebrates its 50th anniversary. Most Americans associate it with the protests against the Vietnam War. Few know that the symbol is much older than that, dating back to a different protest across the sea in Britain as symbol for the campaign for nuclear disarmament. Created by Gerald Holtom, it is based on the Naval sign language of semaphore, matching the 'N' for nuclear & a straight up-and-down 'D' for 'Disarmament,' with a circle around it.

 

The 'n' and 'd' of nuclear disarmament were its source, but its meaning quickly embraced a bigger cause: as a symbol for protest in the broadest sense, more specifically as a sign for peace. And because Gerald Holtom and the anti-nuclear campaign deliberately didn't copyright the symbol, no one owns it - or, perhaps everyone does.
