Time Capsule Unearthed: The 1960's Revisited
A poster with a large peace symbol on it (Rigby, A. (1998). A peace symbol's origins. Peace Review, 10(3), 475., )
The peace symbol was a very prominent part of the 1960’s since the era was filled with remembrance of the past wars merging with the new rawness of the Vietnam War. The symbol was designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom, . When the war started in 1954 no one thought it would go on as long as it had. During the 1960’s the war hit high gear and the government started or restarted the draft for the service. It was during this time the peace symbol came into play with the younger generation, it was used in an attempt to try to persuade the government to end the war and to bring home the soldiers and bring peace to both our country and Vietnam
When the war started there were many people both young and old that were completely against the war, the staged protests and sit-ins trying to make the government stop the war and return the soldier’s home to their families.
When looking back on the era that is best known for having meaning three things, sex, war and of course peace & love, the peace symbol; represents the era very well for those that wanted the peace they believed the world should have known at that time.
The peace symbol is still widely used throughout the world in this day and age to again help promote what the people of all countries want. Peace with all people, countries and to live in some form of harmony.
