Russian WWI poster, Russian 1914 poster. The upper inscription reads “agreement”. Shown are the female personifications of France, Russia, and Britain, the “Triple Entente” allies in the first World War. In center, Russia holds aloft an Orthodox Cross (symbol of faith), Britannia on the right with an anchor (referring to Britain’s navy, but also a traditional symbol of hope), and Marianne on the left with a heart (symbol of charity/love, probably with reference to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica)
