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.
