Scania seems such an odd name for a flowery pattern, especially as in most people's minds Scania is a huge lorry or truck! One of yay retro!'s Swedish followers has kindly let us know that Scania is the latin and ancient name for Skåne, which is a region in Southern Sweden. Perhaps the designer of this very pretty ditsy daisy pattern had visited there and the designs sprung from their experiences?
As for the trucks, the lorry company uses a shield with a dragon (?) head as it's trademark, which is actually the municipality shield of Skåne region. So there you go...you need never be confused mix up the two again!
Pop into yay retro! now to buy some lovely Scania cups and saucers :O)
