A Sign of Disarmament
Though many people today have put their own spin on the peace symbol, the original creator Gerald Holtom, who was a member of a British organization demanding global nuclear disarmament, has explained the inspiration behind the symbol.
At its core, it's a human image.
Gerald Holtom once declared that the symbol was a graphic synthesis of himself, with his arms stretched out and down, in an attitude of despair, just like the character standing before the firing squad in the May 3 shootings, by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. To top it off, he circled the schematic figure. (Degrees Symbol)
Now, the iconic circle encompassing three lines is well-known for representing peace and harmony.
The calming peace symbol urn could be just the thing to help friends and family members focus their grief during a time of loss.
Though many countries and cultures have generated symbols of peace from within their own contexts, the peace symbol is nevertheless one of the most universally recognized symbols for peace in the entire world.
Perhaps your loved one was someone who looked beyond their own experience and embraced concerns around the world. If so, a calming peace symbol urn could be a good way to honor them after they've passed on.
Sign of the Times
Though the peace symbol has its origins back in the twentieth century, it's now considered the official peace sign of today's society. Far from being an obscure symbol that only a small, select group would recognize, the peace symbol is a sign of our times, more or less universally acknowledged.
Because the peace symbol has never been copyrighted or trademarked, it can be used freely by anyone.

Love and Peace
Around the world, women and men are working together to build more inclusive societies. They are protesting injustice, lobbying for fair and equal treatment, and marching in the name of peace.
