Young India (India) / c. 1939

Design: The national flag of India carries the label name, in a very well-designed layout. Mechanical screens are used to achieve the pink background colour, as a percentage of the red, so it is likely that a more modern version of the lithographic process is now being used, though accurate register seems to be an issue.

History: As the previous page. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
