PEACE SIGN ORIGIN AND HISTORY
Have you ever wondered where the peace symbol came from?
Throughout history the peace symbol was not always used in the spirit of love and service to humanity.
For this reason, the Teach Peace Foundation logo is not a traditional peace symbol but people around the world holding hands.
A popular explanation of the peace symbol is that Gerald Herbert Holtom (1914 – 1985) created this symbol on February 21, 1958.1
Holtom was a dedicated peacemaker and graduate of the Royal College of Arts.
During World War II he worked on a farm in England as a conscientious objector.
The BBC quoted Holtom, “I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya’s peasant before the firing squad.
Around this symbol of Peace we created our Peace & Love collection.
With a selection of gorgeous necklaces and stacking bracelets in multicolours to bring Peace, Love and Happiness.
For the perfect arm candy stack up a selection of bright colours for a great Boho Chic look!
