From designer Jaekeyed:

Dear MKB community,

When I was young, I was able to visit a beautiful Asian country, Japan. I won’t forget the trucker hat I got from our vacation which says “MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR.” Coincidentally, the hat’s main color is hot red, with LOVE in white and WAR in black. I loved that hat, but I lost it after a few years and I couldn’t find that very same design again. But that’s okay, life moves forward. Still, that statement will resonate with me until the day I die. In this world of uncertainty, it is better to promote love and kindness.

Fast forward to now, I am dedicating this new gomoku-inspired keycapset design called (赤灰色) Aka Haiiro, literally translated to "Red Grey", for a community that shares the same love for mechanical keyboards from a country other than my own.

I incorporated that same short but profound statement about love and war using tategaki, the traditional Japanese way of writing vertically. I think I might as well help that very same hat designer to propagate what he wanted to tell the world - it is better to make love, not war.
