    The peace sign is not an inverted broken cross, it is the coupling of the two flag semaphore symbols for N and D which stand for Nuclear Disarmament.

    Also, it is the inverse of the horrible image of Goya's peasant before a firing squad, here:

    nuclear disarmament inverse horrible image goyas peasant firing squad

    That symbol of a man holding his arms up with the palms facing outwards became a symbol of despair and death, so the creator of the peace symbol inverted it to possibly symbolise hope and life.

    People who profit from war convinced Christians that the peace sign was the inverted cross of the Anti-Christ in an effot to de-legitimatise the peace movement.

    I also have friends who say that they dont like the peace sign. They say it is anti-christian because it is a "broken cross" (in a circle). And though an upside down cross is an anti-christian symbol, it doesnt mean that thats what the peace sign is displaying. In the peace sign, the cross would have to be upside-down and then broken and stuck in a circle. And in the anti-christian symbol, it wasn't broken. So that idea seems to be a little far fetched.

    The peace sign originated as Nuclear Disarmament, N and D, which made a statement of peace.

    It started out meaning Peace, but because of the anti-christians and some ignorant christians, it is used to be evil.
    So as a Christian, I am taking it back. I am loyal to the peace sign meaning Peace, becausing IT MEANS PEACE!

    It looks more sexual than anything. LOL Didn't we "adopt" it in the 60s with the hippy/free love era? That would make sense.....

    God cares about the content of our hearts, there's no need to fear pictographic symbols. Though I think wearing a crucifix is just rude when He is risen.

    Christians consider wars to be holy-- so by definition, peace is evil.

    The Peace sign is actually a combination semaphoric signal for N and D; 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

    your friend thinks it represents something pagan or non-christian. that does not make it anti-christian.

    just because someone or something does not come from the christian tradition does not make it her enemy.

    she should read the gospels or you should just ask her what her prejudice is based on.

    Satan hates peace

    Oh OK, I have heard of them before. I can understand how they might have problems with the peace sign as it pertains to the rapture and the book of revelations
