Product Description What is now known as the Peace Sign was originally designed in 1958 as the logo for Britain's Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). Made from a blending of the semaphores for N (flags held at 4 and 8 o'clock) and D (flags held at 12 and 6 o'clock), it migrated to the US in the 60's and gained a broader definition as a symbol of peace. It has become one of the most widely known symbols in the world.Our Peace Chime incorporates the peace symbol in a stunning flame-finished stainless steel windcatcher. In keeping with the theme, the wind chime is musically tuned to the notes of the second line ("and let it begin with me") from the popular hymn "Let There Be Peace on Earth". In 1979, GRAMMY(R) Award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminium lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Box Contains 1 x One Chime
