The Peace Symbol

Where the Peace symbol comes from?
You can find on the Web many historical analisys and argumentations about this, from religious to satanic, politics or mason ones.

The most reasonable and widely accepted version is that it comes from the movement against Nuclear War. The symbol was created by Gerald Holtom in the 1958, as symbol for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), which president was Bertrand Russell.



It represents te two letters 'N' and 'D' (Nuclear Disarmament) in the Naval code of Semaphore:

N

D
