Muza (Poland) / 1955

Design: The dove, a universal symbol of peace, is contained within a silhouette of a female figure wielding a sword [see updated note below]. A mirror-image of a bouquet of wildflowers, in a completely different graphic style, fills in the remainder of the upper segment.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Lucyna Lachowicz of Poland, who writes: "This label is from a series of records issued by Muza in 1955, representing a sound chronicle of the fifth World Festival of Youth and Students for Peace and Friendship, which took place in Warsaw, Poland. The series consisted of at least 66 units, and perhaps even more." Thanks to Lucyna for updated info: "The image of a woman wielding a sword is based on the heraldic shield of the city of Warsaw [below]."
