Design: The 'life-belt' format appears again, with the label name running around the outer perimeter. The blue and white colour combination is obviously to represent the colours of the Israeli flag.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who notes that this label was made for a gymnastic festival, the Maccabiah Games (sometimes referred to as the Jewish Olympics), the first of which was held in 1932 and which are still being held.
