Although I don?t collect Hungarian Peoples Republic items, I thought it would be an interesting thing to share here. I got this small flag some years ago and had it deep in a box until my wife found it yesterday and asked if it was something I needed or wanted to keep... (She wanted to threw it out, but was polite enough to ask first)

It?s a ?Competitions flag? which were passed on to the next work-brigade in the socialist quest to fulfill the plane set by the year plan. The text says; ?The competition-flag to the liberation?, ?For the outstanding work achievement?. I use the word ?Competition? because I?m not really sure what would be the right English word for such work-competition.

The flag is from the ?R?kosi? times before 1956. The statue in front is the liberation statue built on the Gell?rt hill in central Budapest.
