Undated, 1970s?
Type: Button
Coverage in Africa: Zimbabwe
Coverage outside Africa: Europe
Language: English
The round yellow button shows a rifle and hammer crossing each other in an “X” pattern. Above them is a round image of the Great Zimbabwe ruins, in black. A small, red five-pointed star is below the “X”, with “ZAPU” in red around the bottom edge.  (A very similar button of the same color and central design places the image of the Zimbabwe ruins at the bottom of the button and a larger red star at the top.) This button was apparently produced on behalf of ZAPU by a European solidarity organization.
