Summary

A black and white poster advertising a peace march held on Hiroshima Day in Canberra. Features a cartoon-style illustration of the Australian Coat of Arms, where the emu has its head stuck in the ground (as ortriches are supposed to do), and the kangaroo hiding behind the central shield. A mushroom cloud is depicted rising from the shield, and the creatures shown on the shield appear dead (the South Australian piping shrike, the Tasmanian Lion, and the Western Australian black swan).
