Version of the flag of Animalism, in Animal Farm, by George Orwell. The flag of Animal Farm consists of a green field with a hoof and a horn. According to the book, the green represents the fields of England, while the hoof and horn represents the Republic of the Animals. This version is based on the hammer and sickle and the red flag of the Soviet Union, probable reference of the green flag. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

We do well to remember there were those who came before us, and that there is nothing new under the sun. What is fiction today, has been reality in times past, and can be again.

“They had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes.”
―     George Orwell, Animal Farm
