There were 4,192 trademark registrations filed with the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office (SZTNH) last year, the office said on Friday.
Most applications came from pharmaceutical companies (Egis, Richter), the government (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Hungarian Tourism Agency), but several other Hungarian companies (such as WeLoveShirts, Lajver Borház) also made one.
The number of registrations was at its highest since 2012, when there were 4,599.
Hungary's oldest trademark is for mineral water Apenta, which was registered in April, 1899.
