This page lists all the various symbols in the Peace Symbols category.

A number of peace symbols have been used in various cultures and contexts, one of the most ancient being the olive branch. The symbol of the dove and olive branch was used by early Christians and was later adopted as a secular symbol. It was popularized by Pablo Picasso in 1949 and became widely used in the post-war peace movement. In the 20th century, the "peace sign," as it is commonly known today, was originally designed as the logo for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.[1] The V hand signal and the peace flag became international peace symbols.
