This image features the face of Lehendakari José Antonio de Aguirre, leader of the Basque government during the war and in exile. In the upper left hand corner appears an ikurriña, the nationalist banner created by Sabino de Arana in the late nineteenth century. Below the head of Aguirre, partial ruins and a pair of gudaris, Basque soldiers identified by their berets, attest to the state of war.
