Gold Flake was first produced in Bristol from 1901 by W.D. & H.O. Wills, part of Imperial Tobacco. 'Gold flake' is made from a bright rich golden tobacco where the name originated.

From around 1912 the brand became popular in India where production and sales moved too, therefore the brand advertising is dated as early British 20th century from its early Bristol origins.
