The Civil Defense 'C.D. logo created during World War II and the  new logo launched by the National Emergency Management Association, NEMA
Civil Defense Logo Dead at 67

The once ubiquitious "C.D." Civil Defense symbol that was designed during World War II by Charles T. Coiner with the N.W. Ayer advertising agency has, effective November 30, 2006, been replaced by an infinitely lamer logo for the National Emergency Management Association. The new logo, which looks like a public transit emblem, was developed by Morrie Goodman, an emergency communications specialist for AGG International. Please join CONELRAD in mourning the passing of another iconic image from the Cold War.

Read the full NEMA press release and note the dismissive remark about the C.D. symbol being a "relic from the Cold War."
