Peace Symbol 50th Anniversary

The Peace Symbol is 50 years old this week.


The internationally recognized graphic's been around almost as long as I have.
It was originally a Ban the Bomb protest symbol in the UK, but Woodstock nation adopted it to protest Viet Nam and it's been associated with anti-war movements ever since. The peace symbol and it's partner the V-fingers Victory and/or Peace gesture are still heavily in use today all over the world.

Teach peace - print a sheet of free peace sign stickers like these.

Not to be missed - check out the peace symbol made from hands in a high 5 gesture (below). It's not in the free collection above - but it is available at Zazzle.
