A new take on a classic symbol... Spreading the message of pro-peace, one postcard, sticker, or handcrafted item at a time!
We are spreading the message of a 'flipped' peace sign, a pro-peace symbol, and encouraging others to do the same. We previously offered a variety of hand-crafted items specifically created with flipped peace signs, and may again carry some items in the future.
For over 50 years we've had the peace sign that we all know. Unfortunately, the symbol with the "arms" facing down, represents death and despair.
Inspired by the original www.TurnPeaceAround.org, we've taken the symbol and simply turned it around. Now the arms are raised up in hope, joy and positive energy. Rather than anti-war, it's pro-peace. It may seem like a small change, but as you know, it's always better to wish for what you want, rather than what you don't want. Only a positive intent achieves a positive result.
It is not a broken cross. It is not representative of the opposite of the original (anti-peace). It is not evil in any way. In fact, the center 'stalk' of the flipped peace sign is also the ancient rune Algiz, which is often associated with Protection, Family/Heritage, and/or Connection with the Gods.
Please bear with me as I dig back out of the rabbit hole where I found the remnants of a past life and dust it off for a fresh look. Watch for images, blog posts, and maybe even products for purchase to come as we move into 2023.
