I think you've opened up a can of worms now KW - Tiananmen Tank Man is a pretty iconic image. :P

For propaganda should be something based on this:

I was thinking of a female soldier from WWII for the Red Army forum, to put a human face on things whilst avoiding "macho" imagery.

I like Tails' propaganda image, though I'd prefer something in colour.

The above image wouldn't convey obvious meaning when reduced to 50x50 pixels.

I've provided a colour version and made a Cuban icon as well.

With the colored one I can't help but hate the angle. Oh and you edited out the hand which kinda makes her look goofy.

She looks more like a 1920's flapper or jazz singer than a propagandist.

I agree with Che. The "Red Wedge" is instantly recognizable by those "in the know", and it seems to convey itself even at 50 pixels, as demonstrated by Che's example.

Lyudmila Pavlichenko, I see. That is a good choice.
