This sign is placed on an old building at the island Lindholmen. Lindholmen is a part of the Swedish Naval Base in Karlskrona and it´s one of the most historical naval parts of Karlskrona and the area is placed on the Unesco´s World Heritage List.
The sign shows where it´s NOT allowed to smoke but it also shows where it IS allowed to smoke.
Translation: Gräns för rökning (Smoking limit), Rökning förbjuden (Smoking forbidden) and Rökning tillåten (Smoking allowed).
Nearby the sign is the 300 meter long and over 300 years old The Rope Walk. Because the tar handle in the rope production was it necessary with a smoking restriction.
I am the PR Manager of The Rope Walk and it is nowadays an active museum.
Click on the link above and get the info folder.
This one is placed on an entrance door to Landstingssalen in Wämö Center. The sign above the white sign was not enough...

Stig Lindberg (1916–1982) was a Swedish ceramic designer, glass designer, textile designer, industrial designer, painter, and illustrator.
One of Sweden's most important postwar designers, Lindberg created whimsical studio ceramics and graceful tableware lines during a long career with the Gustavsberg pottery factory. Stig Lindberg studied painting at the Swedish State School of Arts, Crafts and Design. In 1937, he went to work at Gustavsberg under Wilhelm Kåge. In 1949, he was named Kåge's successor as art director. From this period until he left Gustavsberg in 1980, he designed individual ceramic items, as well as factory produced ranges and lines of dinnerware. He achieved fame for his eccentric forms and whimsical decoration.
