Our origins

FLAMAGAS was born in 1959 when we started to manufacture and market metal lighters under the brand FLAMINAIRE. Since its foundation, FLAMAGAS became one of the first companies to offer this type of lighter to the spanish consumer. The FLAMINAIRE became the reference lighter in the 1960's.

At the end of the 60's a true revolution took place, with the foray of new high-performance plastic materials.

In 1971 Clipper was born, one of the world's first plastic lighters. Since then, Clipper has spread across the world, becoming the iconic fashion lighter among smokers.





CLIPPER is the brand of lighters of FLAMAGAS, present around the world.

The name “Clipper” comes from the word «clip», an informal and historic way to express the concept of «speed». The expression “at a good clip” was used in the old days to refer to something that happens quickly or instantly.

“Clipper” was the name given to the fastest transoceanic sail boats, powered by wind, that existed before the mechanically powered boats. Their ability to travel thousands of miles without having to stop to recharge for coal gave them a certain competitive and ecological advantage over the steamships, and marked a revolution in marine transportation.


Present worldwide

Clipper lighters are marketed in more than 130 countries worldwide.
