Waving the Red Flag

The Library’s collection of Chinese propaganda posters dates to the early days of the People’s Republic following 1949. Bright, colourful, and full of officially sanctioned ideals for the lives of Chinese citizens in this brave new world, these posters feature workers, peasants and leaders, promoting agricultural and industrial production as well as a prosperous world led by a communist China. On display in the Treasures Gallery ‘ Collections in Focus’ space.
