The symbol was designed by Gerald Holtom (1914–1985) for the British nuclear disarmament movement.

Holtom explains ))) "I was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya’s peasant before the firing squad. I formalised the drawing into a line and put a circle round it."
