"Conspiracy theorists believe that the symbol is one symbol among many that has a different meaning to the inscrutable elite than it has to the general public. Some believe it is an ancient symbol designating hatred toward Christians, from Emperor Nero, who crucified the Apostle Peter upside-down, hence it is a symbol of an inverted cross. The Nero's cross has also been recognized as a "mockery" of christianity, as it is thought to represent a broken, upside down cross, within a circle representing "Nero's vision". It is thought that Nero believed that the destruction of Christianity and all Christians would bring peace. It has even been rumored that the proliferation of the sign was on-part due to a Soviet conspiracy to encourage the sign which had a hidden anti-christian design (an objective part of the Soviet goals).
It has also been called a relative of the Nazi Swastika – or the rune algiz inverted, said to mean "hidden danger". It resembles the rune calc."

"Known as the 'peace sign' throughout the 1960's and into the present day, this symbol is the Teutonic rune of death. 1950's peace advocate Gerald Holtom may have been commissioned by communist sympathizer Bertrand Russell to design a symbol to unite leftist peace marchers in 1958. It is clear that either Holtom or Russell deemed the Teutonic (Neronic) cross as the appropriate symbol for their cause."
Throughout the last 2000 years this symbol has designated hatred of Christians. Nero, who despised Christians, crucified the Apostle Peter on a cross head downward. The hideous event resembled the Teutonic cross and became a popular pagan insignia of the day. Thereafter, this sign became known as the 'Neronic cross'."
"The symbol's origin in history proves it to be the visual mystic character for 'Aum' (the split 'Y'). This is the sacred word to Hindu. Chanting 'Aum' is supposed to help awaken 'the serpent power of Brahma' at the base of the human spine. Occultist Albert Pike also identifies this symbol as mythical in his book on Freemasonry, Morals and Dogma. The peace symbol is actually a cross with the arms broken. It also signifies the 'gesture of despair' and the 'death of man'."
"The Germatic tribes who used it attributed strange and mystical properties to the sign. such a 'rune' is said to have been used by 'black magicians' in pagan incantations and condemnations. To this very day the inverted broken cross - identical to the socialists 'peace symbol' - is known in Germany as a 'todersrune', or death rune. Not only was it ordered by Hitler's National Socialists that it must appear on German death notices, but it was part of the official inscription prescribed for the gravestones of Nazi officers of the dread SS. The symbol suited Nazi emphasis on pagan mysticism."
"With the arms of the cross raised in an upright position, it is 'a Pythagorean emblem of the course of life, in the form of a rising path with fork roads to Good and Evil. It also signifies fertility but with the arms pointing downward, it denotes evil and death."
"In fact, the inverted 'Man-rune' - the figure encircled in the common sign which the Communists tell us means 'peace' - has for centuries been a favourite sign of Satanists."
"Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan, used the peace symbol as the backdrop for his altar."
"One former witch makes the following comment about the peace symbol : "It is an ancient and powerful symbol of the Antichrist. During the dark ages it was used in Druid witchcraft and by Satanists of all sorts during the initiation of a new member to their order. They would draw the magic circle and give the initiate a cross. The initiate would then lift the cross and turn it upside down. He would then renounce Christianity in all three dimensions of time (past, present and future) and break the horizontal pieces downward forming the design of the raven's foot. This ugly symbol is nothing short of blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. For one to wear or display this symbol is to announce either knowingly or unknowingly that you have rejected Christ. Remember, symbolism is a picture language, and a picture is worth a thousand words."
