Peace Symbol - 60th Anniversary Thimble

£7.95
In the 1950s the ‘peace sign’, as it is known today, was designed by Gerald Holtom as the logo for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, a group at the forefront of the peace movement in the UK and adopted by anti-war and counterculture activists. Semaphore signals for the letters ‘N’ and ‘D’, standing for ‘Nuclear Disarmament’. In semaphore the letter ‘N’ is formed by a person holding two flags in an inverted ‘V’ and the letter ‘D’ is formed by holding one flag pointed straight up and the other pointed straight down. Superimposing these two signs forms the shape of the centre of the peace symbol.
