Propaganda Banners

One of the first things I noticed when I moved to Beijing is the very big red and white banners which appear to have propaganda/slogans on them.

 

I can translate them literally, but I wonder if there's a proper way of expressing them in English which has the right tone and vocabulary to make them sound like the voice of the Party?

@roddy I tend to get the historical ones in texts i deal with, where you can nick other people's work or it's become a set phrase. Suppose I try to keep that style if handling a new one, punchy but stiff if that makes sense. "Stamp out gangsterism! Hold high right living!" sort of thing.

Maybe I'll try as a Russian.
For the first picture it is:


grow fresh winds of culture
be a citizen
make the city civilized

 

If you like it, I can continue
