Masonic Origin?[edit]

If this was designed as a peace symbol in 1958, why is it seen on masonic garb in a photo from 1937? From 1937 opening of masonic lodge in NimbinSeasalt (talk) 11:46, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

anarchy symbol[edit]

Moved from article until sourced[edit]

"Another interpretation of the peace symbol, in connection with the "Make Love, Not War" anti-war slogan, is that it represents a heterosexual couple engaged in the act of copulation (citation needed)."

Wow. Because that's what it represented for most hippies. Ask your forefather and foremothers and they will tell you. And they'll all tell you. This article is trash.

The Peace Flag[edit]

I deleted this section. There were no sources given, the text appeared to be copyright violation, lifted word-for-word from The Peace Flag, and there also appears to be a conflict of interest. However, if a secondary source can be found for this initiative it can go back. Pelarmian (talk) 12:02, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Broader perspective[edit]

This article focuses primarily on western cultural symbols for peace, only covering visual symbols. Can the perspective of this article be broadened? Is this worth attempting? (talk) 23:28, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
