SN: Luxembourg

Here’s a nice sugar wrapper from Luxair, the Luxembourg airline. I’ve not been to Luxembourg or travelled on their airline so again I can’t tell you who gave it to me or how old it is (which I’m sure you would really have liked to know).
Luxair was set up in 1961 and seems to have had a sleek abstract birdlike thing for a logo from the beginning. How they chose a fat cartoon bird carrying a daisy to represent them on their sugar wrappers is a mystery. You can’t imagine it happening now.
ps. This might be a rare collector's item as most of their sugar wrappers are cyan blue. Isn't that exciting?
