BMW has a back story to its logo.


BMW has a back story to its logo.

There is a myth that BMW’s logo comes from their history in building planes.

BMW stands for “Bayerische Motoren Werke,” which translates to Bavarian Engine Works.

One of BMW’s first advertisements, when they produced plane engines, was published in 1929.

It showed two planes, and in their spinning front propeller, “BMW” was highlighted.

In 1942 BMW published an article in “Flugmotoren-Nachrichten” (Aircraft Engine News), confirming that the spinning propeller was their official logo.

Since converting to manufacturing cars, the logo was kept by BMW but has developed slightly over the years.

It is said that the blue and white colors on the logo stem from the official colors of Bavaria, the region the company was started.


BMW has been designing engines for over 100 years, and they are still creating innovative designs.

The German engineering group has made some of the most iconic vehicles of our time and has adapted their business over many years.

They have stuck to their roots as a Bavarian-based company and are proud of their heritage.
