August 26, 2016


The symbol for CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) was designed in 1958 by the late British designer Gerald Holtom (1914-1985).

Gerald knew that a graphic symbol would reinforce the message of the thousands of protesters who took part in a 50-mile march from London’s Trafalgar Square to the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment (AWRE) at Aldermaston, Berkshire.
