Mayans, sneaky bastards! Making me think it's a whole different calendar

To be precise the calendar will enter a new precession around it's orbital plane axis. You might know that the axis around which earth rotates is not quite at a right angle with the plane of the solar system. We precess around it in a cycle that takes -if I'm not mistaken- 27000 years or so.

Anyway, here's a few of the updated versions I promised:







I personally prefer the last one since it looks the most "Russian"

I like them.

I don't' speak Dutch, German, or Russian....so My comment is purely aesthetic.

I like the numbers on the 2nd one and the writing on the 3rd.

My Russian is a bit rusty, but, here's some comments (take 'em or leave 'em):

It looks like you used a cyrillic font or some variant (maybe some form of Eastern European), but when you used "HET" you actually spelled (phonetically) "nyet" translated as "no" in Russian. Probably not your intent, but I thought you'd want to know. The other word isn't Russian they don't have a "J" symbol.

As for the picture, very propaganistic, militaristic, communist, and I'd say just a slight bit creepy - which is why it is so intriguing. It would also look great on a Baltic Porter or RIS.

The original subtext was something like "Hail our glorious soviet army"

If I use an actual Russian translation there are going to be two problems,
1. Nobody here will understand the text and I'll have to explain it again and again
2. The Russian phrase "пятилетка" looks a bit short to be spanning the width of my label.
