Title
Strange Origin of the UN Flag
Abstract
This drawing was one of the clippings compiled by the Network of Patriotic Letter-Writers in the same publication that featured the "United Nations: The Modern Trojan Horse" cartoon (see previous item). The "Russian Arms Banner" on the left side symbolized the frequently-referenced idea that the United Nations was a communist-run organization dedicated to superceding US sovereignty. Fewer commentat ors used the spider web icon apparent in the center image, although its suggestion of a plot that is slowly trapping the entire world is a variation on the popular use of an octopus whose tentacles could stretch around the globe, a popular symbol used to indicate communism that had been in use since at least the 1930s.
