The artist, Rasmus Christiansen, designed plebiscite posters open to different interpretations. This poster offers a birds-eye view of Denmark with clouds covering that part of Southern Jutland that lay outside the plebiscite zones. The plane provides a positive association to technology and progress. The image – combined with the witty text – implies that the those living within the area shown are a common people. And this is correct! But it might easily encourage the belief that quite a different set of people lived in the overclouded area father south. And this is not correct! There have been Danish settlements down to the Schlei-Danevirke line since ancient times, and yet a section of the population here shifted from Danish to German identity at the beginning of the 19th century. However, the picture could not show the whole of Southern Jutland and still use the same text: the argument would be hollow, because even though there was a 'common people' down to the Schlei-Danevirke line, by far the majority of the population of this area did not want to be part of a 'common land' with Denmark. The poster therefore contains a statement that would be void if the clouds further south were dispersed. Danish plebiscite poster, drawn by Ras­mus Christiansen. 2,000 copies.
