BMW

bmw logo 2020

It was believed that the blue and white parts of the BMW logo symbolize the sky, seen through moving propeller blades, which first appeared in the 1918 Bayern-Flugmotor manual, and was the first time the logo appeared in a printed publication. BMW did not make any serious efforts to discourage this myth. In fact, it continued to represent the BMW emblem as a propeller.

The truth however is that the quarters of the inner circle on the BMW badge display the state colors of the State of Bavaria – white and blue. But they are in the inverse order (at least as far as heraldic rules are concerned, where you read clockwise from the top left). The reason for this was that the local trademark law at the time forbade the use of state coats of arms or other symbols of sovereignty on commercial logos.

    There are just a handful of cars that still have Hood Ornaments, but this design and branding detail was the norm years ago and it seemed that they all wanted to outdo their competition. This books titled H.O. is full of images documenting this beautiful automotive element.

  • Havana Motor Club

    Interesting in many ways, but also a bit personal for me because it pains me to see what has happened to Cuba (especially since I was born there), but also quite uplifting to see how people overcome. The fact that it is about cars does not hurt either. Just a lovely recap of the pitfalls of car racing in the island. See it on Amazon and other sources.
