At the top of the poster there is a red, blue and yellow rooster with rays of darkened yellow emanating from it. It stands on three black cannonballs. On either side of the rooster are drums, French flags, red/white/blue flowers, and cannons. A vegetal pattern surrounds the text about three quarters of the page, and then below that are several smaller lines of text.
