AN ENTHUSIASTIC ILLUSTRATOR
Lulled by the sun and the beaches of southeastern France, this young illustrator grew up with a head full of pop colors! Today, she lives in Paris where the summer waves of her childhood constantly influence her work and her good mood. After proving herself for other big brands, she welcomed a collaboration with Monoïkos 1297 with enthusiasm.
A NOTE OF HISTORY
The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the oldest and most prestigious races in the world. It is the most glamorous, the most prestigious, the most popular and above all the Grand Prix that every driver and every team dreams of winning!
Created in 1929 by Antony Noghès, the Monaco circuit, designed in the middle of the city, has maintained almost its entire original layout, a narrow and winding track, which makes it one of the most demanding circuits on the Formula 1 World Championship calendar. The Monaco circuit is 3.367 km long.
It is during the Monaco Grand Prix that the checkered flag featured on our collection was institutionalized as it is today.
Originally, the flag had two black and two white checks. The first photos of its use in motor racing were taken at Long Island in 1904 and then at the finish of the Indianapolis 500 in 1912, but it was in Monaco in 1934 that Antony Noghès made it official to mark the arrival of the first driver with its current design. And it was in 1937, three years later, that the checkered flag was integrated into the international sporting code of the AIACR and became the universal symbol of victory!
