Most web sites in search can give you the story , it's quite amusing really .

I have one similar to what your saying , but mine says maniken cigars , it dates to around then.
I think it was just how people advertised at that time , like now they give away cheap radios or pens , in the 70's it was coffee mugs and key rings.
I'd think if you spent a day at the barras you'd probably find out what it was all about if you speak to the traders , who are a very valuble source of info mate on all things glasgow.

I also vaguely remember being given a mug to commemorate the 800th anniversary of glasgow. Lost it years ago. Would like to get my hands on another one.

Anyone else remember this?

It was to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the founding of Glasgow. I managed to smash mine on the way home from School.

At the time of the Glasgow 800 celebrations there was a Corporation bus painted yellow with the 800 logo on it, at one time I had a picture of it in Byres Road, I'll see if I can find it.
