Olympic Games Poster 1936 Berlin

The 1936 Olympic poster is a great design and is very well known. A competition was held for the design of the 1936 Berlin poster, but none of the entries were deemed satisfactory. The publicity committee commissioned different artists and finally chose the poster by Mr Würbel, which ultimately became the official poster.

This Olympic poster features the Quadriga from the Brandenburg Gate, a landmark of the city of Berlin. In the background is the figure of a wreathed victor, his arm raised in the Olympic salute, symbolizing Olympic sport.
