Peace Sign Turns 50

The Peace Sign, one of the most widely known symbols in the world, was first designed and drawn on home-made banners and badges in London, England on February 21, 1958, when CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament ) was launched at a public meeting but has since been apropriated by scores of different protest movements, from hippies in 1960s America and to the rest of the world, it is known more broadly as the peace symbol.
