CPC happy birthday banner

I felt a wave of Nineteen Eighty-Four rush through me when I spotted this gigantic banner hanging across the road during a recent trip to Zhengzhou:

Translation: "Congratulations to the Communist Party of China on their 89th anniversary"

You don't tend to see such large, ominous banners like this in Beijing. That huge hammer and sickle on the left side of it makes me think of Big Brother.

Check out the Peace Doves in the upper right of the banner:

Doves are so appropriate for the CPC — the fun, inclusive club which has organized such past peaceful events like this, this, and this.
