Datebook: February 21 - Peace Symbol Designed 55 Years Ago

Feb 21, 2013

On this day in 1958, British artist Gerald Holtom finished his design for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). The symbol is actually a combination of the letters CND (the N is the 'triangle' in the middle). Eventually, it became known an international symbol of peace.
