Background Antoni’s tidy and often comic style, frequently deployed in official promotions such as this one, helped to define the international image of Denmark in the 1960s. He also worked for Life magazine and Unicef, and for brands such as Volvo and Shell. The image shows a guardsman in uniform and bearskin holding the national flag horizontally, as occurs in the daily changing of the guard ceremony in Copenhagen.
