Question: Anti-Fascist Symbol

I'm trying to find out some background and history of an anti-fascist symbol, ie, who created it, when, and in what context, and if it is still used by any person, group, or movement. The symbol is three arrows pointing down and to the left at about a 45 degree angle surrounded by a circle.

The three arrow symbol was created by Sergei Tschachotin, former assistent to the physiologist Pawlow in 1931 for the Iron Front.
