Picasso turned thy symbols into an internationally recognizable sign of peace.
After his wild success of Guernica, the world’s most famous anti-war painting, Picasso was invited to create a symbol for ‘peace.’ His Dove of Peace was chosen as the emblem for First International Peace Conference in Paris in 1949.
In the 1950s Gerald Holtom designed a logo for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
The logo was adopted by anti-war and counterculture activists in the US and elsewhere.
Happy International Day of Peace.
