    Ooh, that IS a nice illustration. Did Estonia win independence from Russia/USSR?

    This illustration shows so much!
    1) The white architectural frame shows a pillar style.
    2) The inner frame shows a church pattern with the trinity circles.
    3) The brown skyline of buildings
    4) The blue skyline of construction buildings working on new structures.
    THE BEST PART: 5) The reflection in the river shows the new buildings to come!
    6) The river shows that Estonia is built by the water.
    7) Blustery clouds show brisk weather.

    All this is one cigarette label (which also shows Estonians affinity to smoking–#8)

    great analysis, spud.

    Here’s another one.

    9) The word Tallinn along the bottom represents… Tallinn. The font treatment reflects the heritage of Estonia

    The only thing missing is the representation of technology. The silhouettes of the construction can sorta represent that.
