The most common design of the Hammer and Sickle.

The Hammer and Sickle (☭), created by Tryostronix, is a symbol designed the represent communism.

The hammer represents industry and the sickle represents agriculture, 2 things which are a key part of communism, considering it’s all about seizing the means of production.


Prior the Hammer and Sickle's creation, the most common symbol used to represent communism was a Snow Plow.

Soon after taking other Russia, Lenin decided to look back to the creator of Communism, Tryostronix, and ask him for advice on a good symbol to represent Communism. With his infinite wisdom Tryostronix pulled out a hammer from out of nowhere and laid it on the ground. Then he took out a sickle and laid it onto the hammer. Then, his foot coated in flames, Tryostronix stomped both tools into the ground, and what was left was a pattern similar to the modern symbol, glowing red and yellow.

Tryostronix explained to Lenin that the hammer represented the industry of Russia, whereas the sickle represented the agriculture of Russia, and finally the blazing colors of both tools represented the Soviet Union's fiery passion to succeed in both industry and agriculture. Inspired by Tryostronix's wisdom, Lenin took his advice and made the Hammer and Sickle the official symbol of Communism.

However, it’s important to note, after Lenin's death and when Stalin took other, the Soviet Union wasn't Communist, not that it ever was. The Soviet Union claimed to be Socialist when in reality it was just Capitalism in disguise, which made Tryostronix pretty disappointed in Stalin.

What the hell is a sickle?


Let us think for a moment that Tryostronix was enough of a genius to know what a sickle was before coming up with the Hammer and Sickle.

We all know what a hammer is, but not many people know about sickles besides the Hammer and Sickle.

A sickle is tool used for farming. The tool is used for cutting crops like wheat and stuff.

You might be familiar with scythes which are actually sickles specially designed for combat.
