The camel in the logo is of the dromedary variety. In other languages than English, a distinction is made between camels and dromedaries, so the name and image don't coincide. The name was chosen because in the early 20th century travels to far away places were in vogue and a camel symbolised that nicely. The package artwork was used by rock band Camel for their second album Mirage (including the package sides to make for a square image). The Camel pack is featured prominently in Tom Robbins novel Still Life with Woodpecker, billed as "a love story that happens inside a pack of cigarettes."
