In the lord of the flies what happened at the same time the conch was broken?

Nothing. No other symbol in lord of the flies holds so much power and can replace the conch. The conch is the only tool that can call a meeting and on the island you must have the conch to speak in the assembly. This shows how everybody seem to think how power, leadership and responsibility come from the conch. And this was the reason why Jack smashes the conch in lord of the flies.
The boys are able to speak out only when they have the conch in their hands. The conch was found by Piggy and Ralph in the beginning of the book in a tidal pool. The conch represents democracy and order in the Lord of the Flies. The conch is destroyed when Piggy is killed. This is symbolized the madness of society when the conch breaks.
