Manneken Pis as Red Falcon

Red Falcons was the name of various socialist children’s organizations, popular in Europe and the United States which emerged during the First and Second World Wars. The first such group was founded in the early 20th century by Anton Tesarek, a socialist educator from Austria, under the name “Rote Falken.” The origin of the name is unclear; one possible explanation is that the Falcon is a bird of prey with no imperial links It is red to symbolise socialism.
