    This poster seems to show the propaganda aspect of the why Animal Farm is actually getting better and better. I think that the use of the red color is to symbolize the power of Napoleon. And the black color of the poster suggests that the workers are hard-working.

    How interesting – the layout is also good propaganda – all the animals moving “up” in a positive direction and the humans, falling, broken, black, desolate. Great example of the power of propaganda

    As you can see in this picture, the pig in the top red column is Napoleon pointing towards one direction and with a flag, that means that he’s the leader and as you can see the animals on the bottom, they are following where ever his trotter is pointing and do whatever he says since he says that he being leader will make their lives better and threaten them by asking them “Do you want Mr Jones to come back?” if they don’t listen or have any comments.

    For the bottom column, there are (probably Mr Jones, Me Frederick, Mr. Pilkington and Mr Whymper) armed and a windmill, looks like they are planning on blowing up the farm and the windmill that the animals worked so hard on. Rebuilding and Rebuilding. Walls thicker and thicker each time until it satisfies Napoleon.

    The poster shows the ruthless regime of Napoleon. I think the use of red colour emphasizes the cruel executions that Napoleon held in order to purge all his opposers. The huge size of Napoleon is scaled up in order to show how well fed he was unlike the other animals. On the other hand, the black and white picture depicted on the bottom seems to be telling us of a struggle between humans, possibly the farmers.

    In the red column we see a huge pig (probably Napoleon) pointing his trotter to the air, while animals are moving in the direction of his hand, and holding a flag. This shows his leadership and complete ownership of the Animal farm. All animals listen to what he says.

    In the bottom column, it looks like some armed humans and a windmill, probably Mr Frederick and his men attacking Animal farm and blowing up the windmill.
