Victory Day Billboards


"65 years of Victory: Through Generations"


"65 years of Victory: Through Time"


"May 9th: 65 Years of Victory"


"Victory: 1941-1945"

One of my favorite posters is a variation of this one above—but it's a ribbon that spells "Спасибо" ("Thank you").

I loved all the banners, signs and flags last May for Victory Day.

It is interesting that the word Pobeda (Victory) is used on all the banners.
My mother was 18 in 1945, they were evacuated from Moscow to small village on Volga river. She was attending a medical school for field doctors across the river in Yaroslavl. She said that all people were saying on that day was - "the war is over".

I think it's wonderful that there is such a feeling of patriotism and honor for the veterans. The city was all decked out last May when we were there and beautiful with all the banners, flags, billboards and flowers everywhere.

My Victory Day weekend this year will be spent buying more bark mulch and potting soil at Home Depot, annuals at the nursery and then planting and spreading bark mulch on Sunday. Somehow that's quite a letdown compared to last year in Moscow.
