NA (Semaphore Flags)

Button Badge — B1249B17



All Stereohype button badges available at are classic high quality one inch (25mm) metal back badges with so-called D-pin (although it looks more like an 'e'). Tiny stickers at the back mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. The growing collection of these mobile mini canvases – featuring over 1,600 individual designs by over 600 international graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and artists – consists of all B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) contributions, winners of Stereohype's annual button badge design competition and additional series such as the special collaborations: AFOMFS SeriesMICA Series, 10x10 Series and Emoji Series. Badges are manufactured in the United Kingdom.

This artwork is also available as Button Badge Motif Print.


The internationally recognised peace symbol is a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters ‘N’ and ‘D’, standing for nuclear disarmament. Alice Tosey's set of four button badges is a stronger call for the abolition of nuclear weapons, exploring forms of communication for the letters ‘N’ and ‘A’ using morse code, international code of signals, binary code and semaphore flags.
