New York, NY—November 2, 2018—When you use the hashtag #PeaceDollar, you’ve likely come across the peace sign.
While it’s a nice gesture, it’s not necessarily a particularly good one.
This symbol isn’t universally recognized as a symbol of peace, nor does it represent the world’s current state of affairs, according to Twitter’s VP of Global Emojis and Emoji Research, Chris Smith.
It’s been around for decades, so people can understand it as a simple sign of peace in some countries and not others.
But Smith says that’s not the case in the United States, where the peace dollar symbol is a common and powerful symbol for Americans, but not so much in many other countries.
“I think this has always been about the fact that we have a culture of not knowing the true state of things, that we don’t really know what is going on in the world,” Smith said.
“It’s not just about a symbol, it also has a meaning.
And that meaning has to do with our values and our politics.
We want to be able to see the world in a different light.
And so I think that when we think about peace, we’re not necessarily looking at the symbol, but at what that symbol represents.”
The peace sign represents peace and hope.
It represents hope that we will be able, in the future, to achieve a better world, and that we can do it together.
Smith believes that this symbol is so pervasive because it’s so much more than just a symbol.
“We want to see our country as a peaceful place, and we want to live there,” Smith explained.
“We want peace and love and happiness.
And it’s about creating a world where we can all be free and equal, and it’s really about bringing our values to the table.
It has to be a symbol for peace.
It needs to be in the minds of all of us, because it symbolizes so much.
So I think the world is going to need this symbol in the near future.”
Smith says it’s no surprise that the United Kingdom has the most popular peace sign with over 4 million people, followed by Australia and Germany.
The United States and Canada have similar numbers, with more than 3 million and 2.4 million followers respectively.
But while the United Nations has been using the peace symbol for decades in an effort to promote peace and peacekeeping efforts, it hasn’t always been accepted.
According to Smith, that’s because it isn’t seen as an important symbol in some other countries, including Russia, Iran, and Syria.
“There’s been a huge shift in the past decade or so where it’s becoming much more about the economic importance of the symbol,” Smith noted.
“So, in Syria, there’s this really complicated, political conflict there, and the symbol has been a big part of how people see Syria, because of how it’s used.
So, the symbolism, I think, has shifted a lot.
In the past, we would just use the symbol and say, ‘You know what, we just need to get this war over with, we need peace.’
And then the rest of the world would sort of just accept that it’s kind of a symbol that we should use in our daily lives, but I think there’s a different perspective.”
And as the world becomes more connected, there is a sense of unease and mistrust, and so people are becoming more wary of symbols, Smith said, which can also be part of why the peace currency symbol has taken on such a negative connotation in some places.
“If we were really really in a position to see what this symbol represents, it would be really cool to actually get to use it in a real way, because there’s been no real use of it,” Smith added.
“There’s no actual use of the peace currencies symbol in any way, and in many countries, you can’t really see the peace signs on any of their streets.
There’s no indication that any of these countries have used them.
So it’s all sort of an idea of ‘Hey, look, we can use this symbol to signal peace, but what if we don, you know, put it in the street?’.
So, it really is a very ambiguous symbol, which is a problem because it just can’t be used in a way that is going towards peace.”
