United Nations with Communism, makes Freedom?
At the NAVA 43 (North American Vexillological Association) at Charleston, South Carolina there was an interesting item for auction: a poster made by the US government during World War II. In the background is the Statue of Liberty and on the foreground are flags of various nations allied against Nazi Germany.
I was fascinated to see Lady Liberty standing side by side with the flag of the Soviet Union (top row third from the left) and also the flag of South Africa (bottom left).
This poster advocating a freedom was not issued by the 'liberal press' rather but by the US Government in the 1940s
When the poster was made the United Nations in the form of the UN did not exist yet!
