The Peace Sign was designed and completed February 21, 1958 by Gerald Holtom, a commercial designer and artist in Britain. Commissioned by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, he designed the symbol to use in protest against the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment.
The symbol itself is a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters N and D, standing for Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

Deliberately never copyrighted, the symbol is recognized worldwide for peace and non-violence. No one has to pay or seek permission before they use it.  As the symbol conveys...It is free for all.
When I read about this, I knew my conscience would never allow me to sell the Peace Art I create.  No matter how it's designed, it is still the Peace Sign.  It's meant to be shared. Peace is about all of us.
