Knowing more about its history

The well-known symbol of peace, which represents harmony, love, the end of wars and all kinds of happiness, has much darker origins, the artist who originally created this icon was a British designer named Gerald Holtom, when this guy during 1958 designed the logo, the world was in chaos and despair, nuclear rearmament was on the rise and the shape indicated the words N and D referring to the word Nuclear Disarmament and represented the figure in the drawing of a desolate person.
