The last one holds special significance to a major cause in the course of history. The peace symbol, a cheery circle with what looks like a chicken foot, embedded in it. Some people who still savor the nostalgia, find themselves doodling this sign on the corners of notebooks.
While the symbol itself still features in popular culture, the tale behind its origins remains slightly blurred by time.
This weird looking sign actually came about as the face of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). You must remember that this campaign came to be at a time when paranoia was at an all time high. With many countries rapidly progressing in nuclear science and threatening to destroy other countries if trifled with. Average citizens stuck between warring governments were forced to take a stand. The brutal consequences of a nuclear war were obvious enough to people while the authorities remained stooped in a web of power.
Organizations were established to ensure peace for the habitability of the world as they knew it. Designer, Gerald Holtom created this symbol by merging together the letters N and D for Nuclear Disarmament. He talks about how he knew this symbol would go on to represent the appeals of the masses and its strong impact on the world.
It was first held aloft on posters in 1958 during a march to protest nuclear violations. It was the first large scale anti-nuclear rally of its kind. They marched the 52 miles from London to the nuclear plant shouting slogans and holding up banners with the peace sign portrayed on them.
The success brought about caused a large scale spread of the symbols, handed down through the years to sustain the original aims of the cause.
