I would first say that my dog has turned a reasonable lawn into a race track and I really should have it re seeded. Put these out to air yesterday and now they are again rolled up and put back into a wardrobe. Banners like this don't seem to "surface" on this side of the pond, both these came from the US and size is the down side having said that they still make the impression they were meant to, an echo from the past. The "party" example is slightly shorter by about 2 yards odd, is a little faded, slightly stained and shows age. The HJ banner is almost 30 feet odd in length and is almost spotless given its age. I view the size and colour as part of the selling of the "party", its "values", part of the indoctrination , seduction and control exercised by "the State". Whilst today they are relics of history they are a warning of intolerance, ignorance and warning that a promised utopia never comes without a price.
