Peace Symbols

The peace symbol as we know it today was designed by a man named Gerald Holtom as a logo for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in 1958. The symbol is a superimposed semaphoRead morere of the letters N and D, which stand for nuclear disarmament. It has been adopted as the main symbol of peace by anti-war activists and counter-culture supporters in the United States and the rest of the world.

The peace symbol was often used in protests when Mississippi gained some notoriety because of some events that happened within its borders during the civil rights struggles in the 60s.

Meaningful and symbolic

The refusal to accept the established status quo is one of the reasons why the peace symbol played such an integral part in the American Civil Rights Movement. Rockstars were often seen joining rallies and protests against racial discrimination and the Vietnam War. While, in the studio, they echoed these very strong sentiments in the songs they recorded. It was a wild and tumultuous time in America, and the peace symbol seemed to be the perfect antidote to it. It was a period of experimentation both with the use of mind-altering drugs and with the sexuality of the youngsters of the age. Women from all walks of life removed and burned their bras in protest against what they believed were outdated misogynistic norms and practices.
