1958 Joneser Shirt

"Recession" has replaced Alaska. Do you like my newest creation? What is it specifically that you like? Is it a good or clever design? Do I have talent? What questions do you have? Please email me or comment below.
The symbol was designed and completed February 21, 1958 (my birthday!) by Gerald Holtom, a professional designer and artist in Britain for the April 4 march planned by DAC from Trafalgar Square, London to the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment at Aldermaston in England[5]. The symbol itself is a combination of the semaphoric signals for the letters "N" and "D," standing for Nuclear Disarmament. In semaphore the letter "N" is formed by a person holding two flags in an upside-down "V," and the letter "D" is formed by holding one flag pointed straight up and the other pointed straight down. These two signals imposed over each other form the shape of the peace symbol.
