5 ~ Say NO to Nuclear

5 of the 60 ways of Peace challenge - say NO to nuclear.

One of the most famous peace symbols is the so-called "Peace Sign", but it was originally created to be a symbol for the March for nuclear disarmament, held in London in 1958.

Here's one of the original ceramic lapel badges made for that march... 

The symbol was created from two semaphore signals in a circle: 
N and D - Nuclear Disarmament.

Remember that the next time you see a Peace sign anywhere. :-)
