Anti-Nuclear or Peace Sign. Designed in 1958 and based on the semaphore signals for letters N & D. Created by Harvard Physics and History of Science professor Gerald Holton it first appeared at the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) march from Aldermaston to London in February 1958. It then spread to the U.S. when an American student who was on the March took a bag of the badges back home. Blogspot from 2008 celebrating 50th birthday.
