The History of the Iconic Chevy Bowtie [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 3 years ago

A bowtie can be dapper when it’s worn with a suit—or when it’s adorning the hood of a Chevrolet. The iconic Chevrolet bowtie logo debuted in 1913 in the pages of The Washington Post. There are a number of different theories as to how Chevrolet co-founder William Durant came up with the bowtie logo, ranging from his seeing a similar icon on wallpaper in France to his daughter saying he sketched it one night at the dinner table. Regardless of how the Chevrolet bowtie first came to be, it is now an instantly recognizable symbol of quality and dependability and has appeared on over 215 million vehicles since its introduction. Take a look at this infographic to see how the iconic Chevy bowtie evolved over the years. Please share with your friends and family, and visit your Baltimore Chevy dealer to experience the legend in person.
