This forked symbol was designed for the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War by Gerald Holtom, a professional designer and artist completed Feb 21 1958. It was designed for Britain's April 4 march that started at Trafalgar square and ended at the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment Aldermaston. It was subsequently adopted as an international emblem for the 1960s anti war movement and was also adopted by the counterculture of the time.
The symbol itself is a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters "N" and "D," standing for Nuclear disarmament. In semaphore the letter "N" is formed by a person holding two flags in an upside-down "V," and the letter "D" is formed by holding one flag pointed straight up and the other pointed straight down. These two signals imposed over each other form the shape of the peace symbol. However, Holtom, a conscientious objector during the Second World War, subverted this use of semaphores by placing the D over the N, the "upside down logo" signifying his anti-military principles. 4.1 Grams
