Symbols and Signs: Peace Clip Art

I love peace clip art - peace symbols have been part of my life since the 1960s. I'm a professional graphic artist, a student of symbology and a baby boomer who marched for peace during the Viet Nam conflict. We can all celebrate peace with peace clip art. It's fun to see peace graphics popular again, especially with children and teens.

Peace signs and symbols representing peace are popular subjects for artists, graphic designers and designers. We find peace symbols as a key element in many works of art, on posters, cards and stickers, peace symbols on clothing, and even peace symbol jewelry, and peace clip art is as popular today as it was in the 1970s.

This lens is about peace symbols and peace signs clip art - peace graphics you can use to design your own peace art or projects with a peace theme. There's a bit of peace symbol history presented here to give you some background on the origins and evolution of this 50-year-old icon.

Peace Symbol - History and Popular Campaigns Using the Peace Graphic

Biography of the Peace Symbol

Peace: the Biography of a Symbol tells the backstory of the design of the peace sign in words and pictures, from its origins in the nuclear disarmament efforts of the late 1950s to its adoption by the antiwar movement of the 1960s, through its stint as a mass-marketed commodity and its enduring relevance even today.

Peace: The Biography of a Symbol

The book recounts the controversy inspired by the peace symbol, bringing to light several trials that challenged its very existence. Drawing on exclusive archival interviews with Gerald Holtom, the late creator of the symbol, Peace recounts its birth and goes on to build a historic portrait using both iconic and rarely seen photographs.

Peace, Love, Tie Dye Peace Symbol

There's nothing more symbolic to me of the Sixties peace movement than tie dyed clothing and the classic peace symbol.

Here's a video that teaches to make a tie dye peace symbol on a tee shirt. Very Vermont, sixties style.

    Great stuff! I'm surrounded with peace symbols as well. We make peace jewelry recycled from disarmed nuclear missile systems, so I couldn't help but find your lens!

    I was just looking for a cool peace symbol image the other day. Now I stumble upon these resources. I ended up using one from allposters. It is a peace sign made of flowers on top of John Lennon's memorial in Strawberry Fields, Central Park.

    I think it is kind of funny that wearing the peace symbol has come back into fashion, yet very many don't know the history of it. Great lens.
