Car Logo With Wings

It’s now officially known as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, but the Chrysler name lives on in the Chrysler logo and badging. Originally based on the Kruessler family crest, the Chrysler seal emblem — mated with flanking wings in the 1930s — was meant to represent quality, hence the royal-style wax seal. In the ’50s, Chrysler employed what’s known as a “Jet Age” style log, with two chevrons superimposed onto one another, but it didn’t last long given its temporary trendiness. In 1962, Chrysler’s longstanding five-triangle “Pentastar” logo was created with the idea that it should be timeless and global. It was a logo that was easily identifiable and became synonymous with the ubiquitous K-Car and LeBaron. Then, in the ’90s, the Chrysler seal and wings returned, but with longer and wider wings. The Pentastar came back shortly thereafter, then disappeared forever from Chrysler cars in 2009, when a thin, wide and elegant winged badge took its place. After all the changes, it now looks like the wings are a permanent fixture in the Chrysler logo.

The Bentley logo is quite simple; the logo simply shows two wings with a “B” in the middle. The Bentley logo didn’t go through a lot of changes over the years; they simply tweaked it a bit to keep in tune with the modern designs. The letter “B” in the middle of the logo simply stands for Bentley. The two wings on either side of the letter is a symbol of speed. The Bentley brothers, who founded the company, have always been producing high quality cars with very powerful engines. It was because of these powerful engines that most of their cars were successfully used as racing cars. Since Bentley was known for their power and speed, they aptly symbolized it using the two wings.

Carmakers love wings, and Aston Martin is no exception. The British carmaker was founded in 1913 by two gents, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. While they were selling Singer cars out of their Bamford & Martin shop, they came up with the idea to produce their own vehicles. Some years later, the name transitioned from Bamford & Martin to Aston Martin Motors, born from Martin’s name and the Aston Clinton Hillclimb in Buckinghamshire, where Martin would drive from time to time, no doubt spiritedly. The logo itself denotes speed (hence the wings), but it has evolved over the decades from simple superimposed A and M letters within a circle to, in 1927, a V-shaped winged logo and then, in 1987, to what is essentially the modern version. The emblem today employs straight wings and the Aston Martin name front and center, and it’s one of the more elegant brand emblems in existence today.

A car logo is like a sort of autograph of a car manufacturer, but the logo is even more symbolic and informative. Just a glance at this small emblem can give you an idea of whether it’s a sports car or luxury car, it speaks much about the brand’s image and reputation and the most acquisitive minds can even capture the historical marks. A logo certainly gives zest to a car and that’s why automakers try to invent a peculiar and exquisite visual image to make their cars special and easily recognizable among others.

One of the more original but simple modern automotive symbols out there, Nissan’s luxury brand utilizes a partial oval surrounding a road that narrows into the distance, or to…infinity. It’s a tasteful badge and, thankfully, it conveys an actual connected meaning between the brand name and the logo. The logo is similar to Oldsmobile’s logo, which also shows a road driving off into the distance (but Oldsmobile’s road veers to the right). Infiniti has to be around a bit longer before they can lay claim to any iconic cars, but they are well on their way to making some very dramatic statements.

There are few names in the automotive industry that carry as much panache and gravitas as the British manufacturer Bentley Motors. The emblem shows a bold “B” surrounded by a set of spread wings. The hood ornament is similar, with a large capital B and aviary wings that flow backward. The significance of the emblem is the “B” reflecting the Bentley name, after Walter Owen Bentley, who founded the company in 1919. The winged design links to the original company name, Bentley Aero; the company originally manufactured rotary engines for planes during World War I.

An engineer with a capital E, Ferdinand Porsche intended to create a unique emblem for his exclusive high-performance cars. After long consideration he finally decided upon the current logo which was chosen to glorify the free people of Württemberg. Red and black stripes and the antlers reflect part of the arms of the Kingdom of Württemberg and the black horse in the middle represents the city of Stuttgart as its capital. It is known that Stuttgart was founded on a former stud farm, hence the horse became the key element of the crest. Moreover, a horse is a symbol of speed, strength and elegance which was important for Porsche while choosing the logo.
