History of the Peace Symbol

Gerald Holtom (1914-1985) British artist and designer of the "peace sign". In 1958, Holtom created the peace symbol as the logo for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). The design is a combination of the letters "N" and "D" of the flag semaphore alphabet, standing for nuclear disarmament.
