    Flensted Mobiles are a traditional handicraft in Denmark. The first modern designer mobile was made there in 1954. Today Flensted Mobiles is based on the Danish island of Funen, the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson, where it creates its very own design fairy tales from the old village school in Brenderup. One of the most popular and beloved insects in the world. Bringing good luck and nice weather. The Ladybird has many myths and tales attached to it, myths from all over the world. A common myth is that the number of spots on the ladybird's back, indicates how old it is. In Northern Europe it is said that if a ladybird lands on your hand and you blow it away, you will have a wish granted. In Denmark there is a rhyme that asks the ladybird to fly to the sky and ask the Lord for fairer weather in the morning, and it is tradition for children to say the rhyme when they come across a ladybird. In Italy it is considered good luck if a ladybird flies into your bedroom. In central Europe it is said that if a ladybird crawls across a young woman's hand, she will be married within the year. As you can see, there are only good things associated with the ladybird and it is the reason for countless smiles and laughs each spring all over the world.
