Description:

Simple but impressive sport poster from the 1950s. The design was made by Dénes Vincze who designed numerous sport posters in the fifties and sixties. The poster is a good example of Socialist Realism.

The crest of the Socialist Hungary (commonly called Kádár-crest) is formed by the figures of the five sports of the penthatlon. Fencing, swimming, athletics, horse riding and shooting are represented, as well as the flags of the participating nations.
