English: Russian 1914 poster. The upper inscription reads "concord". 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 recently-completed Sacré-Cœur Basilica) -- "faith, hope, and charity" being the three virtues of the famous Biblical passage I Corinthians 13:13. In the background is a battle scene, with men fighting with guns and swords, some on horseback. Above them is an exploding shell, an early aeroplane, and an airship.
Čeština: Ruský plakát z roku 1914, zobrazující svornost států Trojdohody. Státy alegoricky představují ženské postavy: Francie jako Marianne se srdcem, Rusko s pravoslavným křížem, Anglie s kotvou (symbol britského námořnictva). Postavy těmito symboly zároveň znázorňují tři křesťanské ctnosti: lásku, víru a naději.
