This historic poster features the classic image of the raising of the U.S. flag on Iwo Jima. The original image was taken on February 23, 1945. In this depiction of it it is used to symbolize working together for a common cause. In this case, the cause is helping the war effort by buying War Bonds.
War bonds were used to control inflation and finance military operations in times of war. Even though the U.S. people were dealing with many hardships, including rationing, they were asked to step up and purchase these bonds. By buying a war bond during World War II, you were loaning the government money and supporting the war effort.
