As I have moved forward to produce a movement for World Peace, I have given some thought to our current peace sign. I did some research on it as I have wondered why it seems like it is inverted. I found out that it was designed by British Artist Gerald Holtom for the campaign for nuclear disarmament, CND. It was designed in 1958 and the CND was having its first major march in England.
Holtom explained that the symbol superimposed the semaphore letters N and D over each other. V reversed = N I = D. To quote Holtom, “I was in despair. Deep despair; with hands palms stretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya’s peasant before the firing squad. I formalized the drawing into a line and put a circle around it.”
This does NOT fit into my idea of a Peace Symbol, which needs to be a symbol of Light! Symbols contain hidden truth; code that express in Light Language. This symbol of World Peace must be uplifting, joy-filled and powerful!! I am currently working with a lovely artist to design this living work of art.
Individuals and businesses alike will WANT to display this on their web-sites and in their businesses but………… the privilege comes with eligibility and accountability.
I will post the details in my next blog!
Happy Days are ours!!!
