NAW (Norddeutsche Automobil Werke) started car production in Hameln on Weser in 1907 with a car called Colibri. NAW built light cars and was relatively successful so they offered a second type, the Sperber in 1911, also named after a bird (german for sparrowhawk).

This Sperber emblem is one of the oldest German car emblems still in existence.
