Keep Calm and Carry On - who has not seen this popular slogan! They are the trend of popularity with personalized versions at every turn! But did you know there really is a history to this slogan?
Keep Calm and Carry On was the third in a series of World War 2 posters drawn up by the UK Ministry of Information in order to boost the morale of the British people by passing on a message from King George VI.
…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 phrase template “Keep Calm and X”.http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/keep-calm-and-carry-on
