More About this Item

Description: Artist: ANONYMOUS Size: 22 3/8 x 32 1/2 in./56.8 x 82.5 cm Plakat-Limke This is a major piece of Hungarian history. When the Hungarian Uprising of 1956 broke out, one form of protest was to display the flag of the Hungarian People's Republic – but with the central emblem of the Communist regime cut out of it. This coat of arms was to be its replacement: a return to the historic heraldry of Hungary, before the Communists. This poster is the Revolution's slogan for "An Independent-Neutral Hungary," originated by Imre Nagy, a 60-year-old former Communist apparatchik who assumed leadership of the revolutionary government and called for the previously unthinkable: independence, neutrality, multiparty democracy, and free elections. Imre Nagy "did not make the revolution. But he made it possible," the British diplomat Peter Unwin wrote. "Nagy and the revolution went down to defeat, but they gave Hungary back its self-respect." This is his flag. (Propaganda)
