Hammer and Plow[edit]

Can someone add information on the symbol used BEFORE the Hammer and Sickle, the Hammer and Plow?


The relevance of the communist star?[edit]

The first paragraph of the article seems to suggest the hammer and sickle symbolize communism. I may be misinformed, but I remember reading (as far as the red flag of the Soviet Union is concerned) that the star represents the Communist Party, the hammer the prole, the sickle the peasant and the color red represents revolution. I understand the hammer and sickle have come to symbolize communism (and are used by communist parties as such), but it seems rather critical to note that without the star, the symbolism can be interpreted differently, revealing the value of the star itself. Shared knowledge on this subject would be appreciated. -- 22:29, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

"Serp i Molot (Russian language for 'sickle and hammer' (in fact, it is the actual Russian name of this symbol) is the name of the Moscow Metallurgical Plant."

Looks like English... is made up of mostly English words... but what on Earth does it mean? Typical wikiality crap. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:04, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Hammer and dove.png[edit]

Image:Hammer and dove.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
