Famous Logos That Have A Hidden Message
As long as I can remember, the BMW logo has been associated with a blue sky and a propeller spinning, going back to its aircraft building days. But what if I told you that wasn t the original intention? According to NYTimes, the trademark was registered in 1917, but the propeller association wasn t created until a 1929 advertisement where the logo was featured alongside an aircraft. What does it mean then? The colors are blue and white to represent the Bavarian Free State colors. The reason it looks how it does is because using a national symbol in a commercial trademark was illegal, so the colors were arranged in an opposing order. There you have it.
