The History of the Iconic Chevrolet Bowtie

Last updated 4 years ago

It is easy to recognize a Chevrolet vehicle by noticing the iconic bowtie symbol. Have you ever wondered where this classic Chevrolet logo came from? There is still some mystery surrounding the origins of the bowtie symbol. Some sources believe that the co-founder of the Chevrolet Company, William C. Durant, was inspired to create the bowtie after he saw a similar design in a hotel in Paris. Others believe that the logo was modeled on a sketch that Mr. Durant created during dinner. Regardless of its origins, the Chevrolet bowtie has gone on to become a symbol of performance, quality, and innovation.
