The Peace Symbol was designed by Gerald Holtum, a message designer, in England in 1958 for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. It is the combination of two semaphore letters, N and D for Nuclear Disarmament, surrounded by a circle. It was made for a single protest march in Trafalgar Square but was picked up by the American anti-war movement when Vietnam heated up. Philosopher Bertrand Russell was instrumental in bringing the symbol to the US.
