Peace Button - The classic peace symbol!
Available as a pinback button or fridge magnet in 1-1/4", 2-1/4" or 3"
Peace Symbol Created (1958):
In 1958, British artist Gerald Holtom drew a circle with three lines
inside, intending the design to be a symbol for the Direct Action
Committee Against Nuclear War (DAC). The design incorporates a circle
with the lines within it representing the simplified positions of two
semaphore letters (the system of using flags to send information great
distances, such as from ship to ship). The letters "N" and "D" were used
to represent "nuclear disarmament." (The "N" is formed by a person
holding a flag in each hand and then pointing them toward the ground at a
45 degree angle. The "D" is formed by holding one flag straight down
and one straight up.)
If you're a beatnik, a sixties fan looking for a design, we can create it for you. Send us your idea and we can create a 60's button design that rocks just like the sixties did! There were some great Sixties designs and slogans. Let us create a beatnik design that's exactly what you're looking for.
