The hijacked and inverted Peace symbol is one that's still very frequently used in the Lightworker community.

The user conducted her own research and sent me the following article, which is both informative and enlightening.

The History of the Peace Sign
DID YOU KNOW THE CREATOR OF THE PEACE SIGN WANTED IT TO POINT UP?
Stores around the globe are dedicated to selling clothes with the symbol on them. People wear them as necklaces, bracelets, key chains, and other accessories. You see it on towels, cups, mugs, stickers and magnets. They show up in art, on TV commercials and can be seen in most pop culture. But...

Well, to understand this topic a little better, let’s dig into the history of our "peace" symbol.
The peace symbol, in its proper right-side UP position is a depiction of the Kabbalic Sephiroth or the Tree of Life. Unfortunately, we've been given false information about the peace symbol, as the current upside-down position sub-consciously emanates the opposite energy of peace. Which in turn, is potentially keeping humanity trapped in a cycle of war, death and despair.
