Peace: The Symbol of a Nation 



         This topic is important to a study of America because of discussions not only of American culture and how the United States, as a nation, transforms things from high culture to mass culture and ultimately to pop culture but also to demonstrate the use of symbols as part of a national identity. The peace symbol has come to represent a generation of war protests, a generation of hippies and an overall identity of peace that Americans tend to identify with. It is also a symbol that reminds the country that history repeats itself. It did not disappear after the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament or even after Vietnam. It has been a sign of endurance and resilience and continues to do so as the United States enters more current wars and times of national unrest.
