By 1932, the Near East Fair, which had been held several times since 1923, was formally named the Levant Fair. An international trade and commerce show, it highlighted Jewish Palestine's economic success and was intended to help cement Tel Aviv as an international city at the crossroads between the East and the West. The architect Arieh El-Hanani designed the "Flying Camel" as a logo for the fair, representing the connection between the East and West, and no doubt making a connection to the winged helmet of Mercury, God of Commerce. Rare.
