The “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster and saying has recently had a resurgence in popularity (major understatement).
In a previous post, we’ve gone over the origin of “Keep Calm And Carry On” of how it was first used in history. Like all popular things, it wasn’t long before people decided to take the concept into their own hands, and a new social meme was born. So, for your viewing pleasure, keep calm and scroll down!
Keep Calm and Carry On is a catchphrase that originally appeared on a World War II-era British public safety poster. After one of the original posters was recovered and placed in a British bookshop in 2000, the inspirational message was shared online, sparking a series of image macros centered around the phrasal template “Keep Calm and X.”
The website KeepCalmAndCarryOn.com was registered in February 2007, with an online shop selling a variety of related merchandise featuring the slogan, ranging from T-shirts and bags to deck chairs and chocolate bars.
