Euskara signage often has late 60s vibe

Does anyone know why this is? Other than perhaps when the signage was first made?

Thanks! I'm still not sure what the connection is, if any, with what we associate with that time period...the closest I saw was the "Karako", but when I searched it, nothing doing. I'll try google, some more...

I don't see the connection myself. The Basque lettering is instantly recognizable as such. A bold but solemn celtic/roman style mishmash. The 60s were all about flash and pizzazz right? (Okay, okay, I'm not old enough to have lived through that era). More seriously: maybe it's just a subconscious relating of the fight the system hippie movements with the independent nature of the Basque Country.

Sidenote: Euskadi means Basque Country, euskara is just the language — the picture on the link geraintf posted is decidedly Spanish (language)
