A whole stadium full of birthday guests: 30,000 visitors celebrated "their" Bayer and 150 years of the company's history in the BayArena soccer stadium in Leverkusen.

An airship built specially to commemorate the anniversary and a Science Truck carried the Bayer Cross to the world's biggest cities.

After all, time and again, Bayer inventions have helped improve people's quality of life.
