Soviet-era Women's Day Posters

Good morning all,

Above has posters celebrating Women's Day.

Vacuity: emptiness; anything pointless (I had to look it up.)

Re poster 9; Does anyone know the SSR represented by the flag in left column, 3rd from the bottom, without the yellow star, hammer and sickle ?

........

When viewing above link I was thinking of 2 matters:
1. Social history
2. Labor economics

The Georgian SSR. I think someone ended up in the Gulag for this one - unless it was an obscure, very short lived variant (unlikely, black - the color of treason).

To be correct it was gold not yellow, although the Georgian flag was the only one with red symbols.

Good morning Wm,

Appreciate info. Thank you.

Tavarish Stalin was from Georgia so maybe the gulag was not a worst-case situation !

I think the black spikes and symbols were originally proudly red as intended, but the original picture (from retropost.ru) was so tiny its small details got decolored. It can be seen under magnification:
