USA, UK and the World - Peace Symbol

In 1958, Gerald Holtom designed the peace symbol as the logo for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). Gerald Holtom was a professional designer, artist, and a graduate of the British Royal College of Arts. The peace symbol he designed incorporates a circle and three lines representing the semaphore letters "N" and "D" for nuclear disarmament.

The peace symbol first appeared in public during a 1958 Easter weekend CND anti-nuclear march from London to Aldermaston (where British nuclear weapons were and still are manufactured). The first peace sign badges were made by Eric Austin of the Kensington CND using white clay with the symbol painted black. They were distributed with a note explaining that in the event of a nuclear war, these fired pottery badges would be among the few human artifacts to survive the nuclear inferno.

 

Between 1958 and 1960 the peace symbol quickly spread in Britain and the United States. In the United States the peace symbol appeared in civil rights marches and anti-Vietnam War demonstrations. Today, the peace symbol is internationally recognized and used by peace activists. The peace symbol appeared on the walls of Prague when the Soviet tanks invaded in 1968, on the Berlin Wall, in Sarajevo, Belgrade, Greece, Argentina, and East Timor.

 

The peace symbol has intentionally never been copyrighted. No one has to pay or to seek permission to use it. The peace symbol is a symbol of freedom, free for all. The CND accepts voluntary donations to their peace education and information efforts. Additional information about the CND can be found at: www.cnduk.org.

 

Gerald Holtom's first peace symbol sketches are now part of the Commonweal Collection at the University of Bradford in England. The symbol represents a great sentiment we hope the world supports now and for centuries to come. We would all be lucky if the world were at peace.
