"As it turns out, the circular peace sign, one of the most recognizable images of the 20th century, was an intentional design attempting to feature the letters N and D- Nuclear Disarmament in 1958. It is her 50 th anniversary
The symbol itself is a combination of the semaphoric 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. In the original design
the lines widened at the edge of the circle."
