A Century Old History of Citroën logo

In 1900, André Citroën successfully utilised a patent for gears in the form of double chevrons, a symbol he then used in 1919, when he began to manufacture cars. Between 1921 and 1936, the oval was replaced by a hexagon on a blue background that highlighted the yellow chevrons, then the name Citroën was introduced. In the early 1930s, a parallel logo appeared, representing a swan sailing in Citroën rafters, to symbolize the new floating engines.

By 1959, yellow chevrons protrude from a white ellipse and then in 1966, the name Citroën is integrated in a blue square. From 1985, to modernize the image of the brand, the rafters are now white and inserted within a red square. In 2009, the brands new logo features chromed and rounded chevrons in 3D, with Citroën inscribed in red underneath. It was refined further in 2016 when a 2D version inspired by a flat design, was unveiled.
