A great official Olympics poster which was made to promote the upcoming 1980 Olympics to be held in Moscow, Russia.
The poster features nice artwork for a people from all over the world each representing their nation with big flags. Note that a there the most visible flags are from the former east bloc.
The Olympic Games of 1980 did not have as many participating countries as hoped for. The Games was massively boycotted because of the Soviet war in Afghanistan which led to an absence of 65 countries. This prompted the Soviet-led boycott of the 1984 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles. Boycotting Olympic Games was nothing special in that period. Eight years before the Games in Moscow - 28 nations boycotted the 1974 Olympics in Montreal in protest at apartheid in South Africa that participated in these games.
Overall this poster makes one think of the many historical events that surrounded the 1980 Olympic Games. Furthermore poster is a true beauty which displays fine Czechoslovakian artwork and is a great addition to anyone interested in the Olympics or sports.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
