The letters "N" and "D" were used to represent "nuclear disarmament. " (The "N" is formed by a person holding a flag in each hand and then pointing them toward the ground at a 45 degree angle. The "D" is formed by holding one flag straight down and one straight up.)
Holtom finished his design on February 21, 1958 and the design was then first introduced to the public at a DAC march on April 4.
