TWO YEARS before the Gold Medal in boxing was won by another conscientious objector to be GERALD HOLTOM put his art education to world use in 1958. First used for the ALDERMASTON March against N-U-C-L-E-A-R, ( pronounced: new-klee-errr. ), DISARMAMENT in Great Britain. Easter was the date of destiny for the visual representation of an era, ( the 1960’s ), that will outlast its creator.

From over a horizon.

From over a horizon.

February 21,1958, the PEACE SYMBOL was born. Its creator left us September 18, 1985.

He's at it.

Mr. Holtom didn’t even copyright his world symbol. [Thank You]

    I have always treasured this symbol; nice to know where and from whom it came into being. You always post the most interesting items. Thank you too.
