Hippy Peace Symbol Still Meaningless Today as it was 50 Years Ago. Nukes Are Everywhere. — 7 Comments

  1. I don’t get why the hand symbol points the opposite way… shouldn’t we be holding our hands upside down, or would that symbolise the anti-peace?

  2. Some people, when I was a kid, used to draw it as the Mercedes-Benz symbol by mistake. We didn’t know much from a Benz in Southeastern Pennsylvania, but I expect Benz owners knew peace a lot better than, say, troops deployed in ‘Nam.

    Can the anniversary of the Flower Power flower and the Happy Face be far behind?

  3. try again. the so called peace sign had its origins in the dark ages as a satanic symbol. gerald holtem either copied the design or had no idea of its earlier origin.
