The Hidden Meaning of the "TOYOTA" Name and Logo

Toyota is a big and famous company for making vehicles. However, most people do not know why the company is called Toyota and why it uses that simple logo. It has always used that logo for years. These things come with reasons behind them. You also don't require a lot of thinking to unravel them. That is why I believe you will understand it after reading this article.

This name was changed from its original name in 1936 when the company ran a public competition to design a new logo. The founder of this company was called Sakichi Toyoda. The name Toyota originated from Toyoda. Of course, it is common to start a company with your name. The change was a symbolism of a large commercial enterprise from a small independent company.

The company has now grown to become a big brand. The symbol itself speaks a lot about it. It has three ovals. The two ovals inside the big one represent the heart of the customer and the company. They overlap to represent mutually. They also form T, an abbreviation of the word "Toyota." It is also a symbol of a steering wheel which represents the vehicle itself. The outer oval now stands for the outside world which embraces Toyota. Additionally, the symbol contains all letters in the word "TOYOTA." This is the power of inventions.
