Description Hand made poster, with the slogan: Welcome to "O" St!
The 'O' is made to resemble the rising sun image of the Obama for America group. The 'O' on the poster has a blue upper half, a red and white striped lower half, and then a white, open center. Just below and to the right of the 'O' is a yellow star with red arcs going down and to the right.
