Where does the Peace sign come from?
The peace sign comprises of a circle and a vertical line with downward sloping lines forming a sort of upside-down broken cross. During the 1960s the peace symbol was associated with the spirit of love, service to humanity and peace. It grew to enormous prominence from the anti-war hippie culture and quickly merged into mainstream society. The peace symbol was seen everywhere, appearing on everyday items such as advertisements, art and toys.
Who designed the Peace symbol?
This well-known Peace symbol was designed by artist Gerald Herbert Holtom, on February 21st, 1958. Holtom was a staunch peacemaker, and he worked closely with the organisation Direct Action Committee against Nuclear War to develop the design. The design was first seen in the public eye on April 4, 1958, at the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) march. Since, it has risen to significant prominence, with the symbol being the most well-known icon for peace.
The “V” sign had been used for centuries to represent “victory”, its meaning changed during the 1960’s to stand for peace. Since, the peace sign has become a generic peace sign, crossing national and cultural boundaries.
