The Cross of Nero is an inverted cross, broken at the anchor of the cross and enclosed in a circle, representing Nero's vision. Nero believed there would be world peace without Christianity, as a consequence of which thousands of Christians were martyred under his rule

Having been researching for some time and seeking documentation for 1st Century (When Nero lived) Roman law, I have not found any references to a symbol related to the modern "Peace Symbol".  Does that mean they are not there?  Not for sure, but it does mean for sure that random references to it are not reliably historical unless they can accurately reference the 1st century source for the association.

Nero did not believe there would be world peace, except in the abstract imperial sense (if everyone just obeys me, I won't have to kill them).  I believe that Nero believed that the nascent christian movement was a direct challenge to his self-declared god-like authority.  So he blamed the huge fire of Rome on them, taking the opportunity to accomplish several goals at the same time.

I humbly suggest that careful research must be done to any claim made on the WWW.  The bible says the heart of [humans] is desparately wicked and deceitful above all things.  The WWW proves scripture true in that.
