Additional Notes Circular badge with irregular edges from encircled olive branch in green and outlined in gold. At centre is blue background and text 'PAX' in gold.

This badge was probably made for the peace movement. Pax is Latin for peace and was depicted on Roman coins as a personification of the goddess of peace. She was usually represented as a young woman with a cornucopia in her left hand and the olive branch in her right hand. (Information from Parchami, Ali (2009).
