Since 1955 this vahine is the is the logo of the famous brand mark of the local beer Hinano. It was created by a suedish painter called Pierre HEYMAN who painted the first drawing in 1953. The logo is engraved on the bottles until 1957 when the first ticket appear, for the pleasure of consumers and tourists who collect them. Since, the Hinano ticket changed a lot.
