Topic: Origin of the Peace Sign
Dear Class Brain,
What is the origin of the peace sign that started being used in the 1960's? My pastor at church says it symbolizes a broken cross and does not represent the "right kind of peace." I find this sort of hard to swallow.
This is by far one of the most interesting questions we've ever received. While trying to sift through numerous conflicting stories concerning the origin of the peace sign, I came across a few possibilities. Here are some links to what I found. Instead of giving you a definitive answer, I thought it would be best to present you with some resources so you can draw your own conclusion.
The banner is annoying but the description is interesting.
