Tulips of Victory 5 June 1979

Iranian Political Poster, 5 June 1979 (19.5" x 27.5")

This poster was given to me by the family of a professor of mine after he died. He had apparently collected it in Iran. It is titled The Tulips of Victory, and suggests that the fruit of the bloodshed that occurred during a riot in Iran on 5 June 1963 led to the victory of the Iranian revolution. The facts of those events are disputed, and are discussed in some detail by Fara Mansoor here.
