Asked in Peace
Is the peace symbol a satanic symbol?
Yes. PEACE SYMBOL Also known as the Cross of Nero. Many people are not aware of the origins of this symbol or how it became to symbolize peace. This is the cross of Nero, a broken and inverted cross, enclosed in a circle which represents Nero's vision. Actually NO The internationally recognized symbol for peace was originally designed for the British nuclear disarmament movement by Gerald Holtom in 1958 Nero's cross was a circle with an X, The crucifix cross during those times were not symbolic or sacred to Christians but seen as a method of punishments or torture and the way Christ was put to death. Common sense tells you that it was more feared than holy. Not till the 2nd century did the cross become something of a symbol or seal but not something that could be used by Nero to mock. The Bible does not even mention the cross as a symbol. Sorry, but that is not Nero's cross. There is no artifact that depicts a circle with an upside down broken cross anywhere in history till Christians created this myth in the early 70's Read more about The origin of the Peace Symbol: see related links

Where is the peace emblem used in religion or a occult and what for?
The peace emblem doesn't really factor into the occult in any significant way. However, the fringe religious fantatics have claimed from time to time that the peace symbol is an upside down cross with its arms broken, inverting and refuting the Christian doctrine of salvation. While creative, this is absolutel not true. The peace symbol was supposedly a dove's foot, doves being symbols of peace... this may be apocryphal, but its as good an explination as any.
Is the peace sign really an upside down broken cross?
The peace sign, as seen today, is not a broken cross. It was originally designed for the nuclear disarmament campaign, and is still recognized as such in Great Britain. It has been widely accepted as the peace sign worldwide. It is a combination of the air-flag signals for N(uclear) and D(isarmament). the sign for N is two flags pointed at downward angles and D is one flag up and the other down. it was made in 1958. it has absolutely nothing to do with anti-christians or broken crosses. Another View The peace sign (minus the circle around it) has a 1300 year history as an anti-Christian symbol. It was also used by the Nazis in WWII. Better known as St. Peter's broken cross as St. Peter, not wanting the value of his own execution to be mistakenly put on the level as crucifixion of Christ, asked that he be crucified upside down. Remember that the ancient world was filled with people who could not read and there for relied on symbols to relate information. Early Christians used the cross, an anchor, the ichthys (fish) and dozens of other symbols to relay messages of encouragement and allegiances and such to others in the area. Many other people of non-Christian beliefs also used symbols for similar purposes.

Asked in Jewelry
Is a peace sign a broken cross?
no i would not say it is a broken cross but my sister thinks it is but my opinion is that a piece sign is not a cross It is always best for people to be informed of the change in meanings of types of symbols and other information. The 'peace' symbol down through the last 100 or so years has changed its meaning. The 'peace' symbol has been used in many anti-Christ symbolism and also various rock and roll music. The 'peace' symbol also has come to mean a 'broken cross'. Just as the word 'gay' was originally meant to mean happy around the turn of the century until just recently. Now the word is associated with something else and people don't use it for 'being happy' like they once did. Multiple meanings of symbols and words can still be used for a variety of meanings.
Is the peace sign really an upside down broken cro?
Yes ... Inverted Broken Cross A broken, upside down cross is an earlier usage. It was apparently designed by Gerald Herbert Holtrom for the Direct Action Committee against Nuclear War, in 1958. His associate, Bertrand Russell may be the chief promoter of that symbol. He was an atheist who expressed his desire for widespread plagues, to cull and decrease the world's population. He may very well have understood the prior symbolism of that sign. There has been speculation that Russell may have been a closet satanist, but no substantiation that I have cursorily found. Christians would see episodes and attitudes expressed of himself in his writings that would tend to allow demonic influence in a person's life.

Is the peace sign making fun of the cross?
What does a peace sign without the center line mean?
The peace sign with the middle line was originally used in satanic rituals where they broke the sides and made it into a broken cross to renounce Jesus. The original peace sign was an upside down Y, but later got changed to that of the symbol of satanists renouncing Jesus, not sure why. But either way, one needs to be careful of the symbol because the new one could be taken the wrong way. That and the symbol of the "new" peace sign has a demonic force behind it whether one knows it or not. I think it was just a trick by the devil in general because using that symbol , without knowing it, you are renouncing Jesus. The original is the true peace sign.
