I have enjoyed collecting peace signs for many years. I even use a celtic knot peace sign icon as my avatar on here. I was a hippie back in the 60's and put my two fingers up in the peace signification quite often. Now here is an article about the actual origin of the sign. http://shine.yahoo.com/event/green/where-did-the-peace-sign-come-from-2392559/

That is very interesting. Nuclear Disarmment huh? Wow. I haven't really thought about the origin of signs but it would be interesting to know some of them.

Hi Celticeagle, Thanks for that very interesting article. I remember the peace symbol being very popular in the sixtys and early seventies. And you are right in that it is still very popular today. I put a lot of the peace symbols on to the incense burners I make and they sell quickly. Again....thanks for the interesting read. Learn something new every day!
