Mercedes-Benz Logo Meaning

Peeling away the layers of the Mercedes-Benz logo, you’ll notice that it’s actually two logos in one. The logo was designed to reflect the unity of the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft with Benz & Cie. brands. When the two brands merged together, the new company logo combined the star of the Daimler company with the laurel wreath of the Benz brand. The encircled three-pointed star became a globally recognized logo that is used to this day.
