Peace is a noble goal that all can agree on.
Any movement needs a sign, so do peace movements.
THE UNIVERSAL PEACE SIGN, PAX MUNDI, description:
The latin letters 'PX' traditionally pronounce as pax, which is Latin and means peace.
The PAX sign is shown in a circle.The circle stands for the World.
MUNDI is Latin. Mundi means world. It is also it's plural: worlds.
In our context Pax Mundi means World Peace.
It can also mean Worlds of Peace. Wherever.
This is therefore a sign for UNIVERSAL peace.
It is not restricted to this World.
The PAX sign is also known as the Chi-Rho, which are it's Greek letters. It is then spelled 'XP'. In English it is phonetically pronounced as "kairo". In Greek (as abbreviation for 'chrestos') the sign literally means 'good'.
USAGE IN FIRST CONTACT SCENARIO
Should we ever make contact, this peace sign will show our good intentions to representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations.
It is a historically significant sign with layers of meanings, all of which are positive.
If you want to use the sign please link back to http://paxmundi.today, or https://facebook.com/worldsofpeace, both link to the World Peace Movement on Facebook. If you use it in a physical form (posters, T-shirts, whatever), include the "paxmundi.today" phrase in writing.
You can also set up your own branch of the World Peace Movement and use this logo, as long as the logo is identified as coming from paxmundi.today. If you want to do so, contact me for further designs and higher image resolutions: email@example.com.

The coherent identification of a group or movement is aided by a common unambigous sign.
In the 1960's that identification was achieved by use of the CND sign, which has been identified as the Germanic younger Futhark rune. In the Third Reich it was popular as a symbol for death. Therefore I have searched for an alternative.
I have spent some time studying semiotics and Umberto Eco.
That helped me to remember the Chi Rho sign, also known as Pax.
It took then four hours to put it together.
The result has similarities to the known CND sign but adds a layer which clarifies it's origin.
The CND sign has never really been a peace sign. The only effect that a global nuclear ban would have is to encourage conventional global warfare.
