This poster promotes a unified vision of global Communism. The nations are represented by their respective flags alongside the social economic bloc headquarters in Moscow. The sense of equality between the countries is symbolised by the flags being of equal size. However, the looming edifice of the Moscow headquarters sends the viewer a message about the USSR holding the ultimate seat of power.
Landscape format poster showing eight flags (forming the Socialist economic bloc):Bulgaria, Cuba, Romania, Hungary, USSR, GDR (East Germany), Poland and Czechoslovakia. Image of the social economic bloc headquarters, Moscow.
