This poster is described by Shafiq Radwan in his book "The Palestinian Poster" as having played a role, based in its use of the colors in Egypt's national flag - red, white and black (this is a black and white copy) and the depiction of ordinary people arrayed as a "front" in the design of subsequent Palestinian revolutionary posters.
