LOL! Great catch aadi! I totally missed that one!

Now I can't believe that the Volkswagen logo (which Hitler had a heavy hand in popularizing as "car of the people" roughly translated) of 1939 is correct....or is it? I mean, you remove the inner two rungs or "blades" of the "F"-like fans protruding from the axis (no pun...alright, yeah, pun intended) and you'd have a logo that looks wildly similar to the swastika?!?

I'm missing the joke aren't I?

This is a great collection of old and future logos- leaning towards the minimalistic. :) I didn't even know about the oldest apple logo. To see a similar post check out our blog critiquing the logos of 2012 presidential hopefuls:

The google logo doesnt flow. Why would they lose their world-renowned 4 colors, that they put onto EVERYTHING they own, for a cheap, mega-rounded logo? The rest are great though, really loved them, lol @ starbucks lady getting extremely close.

OMG i like some of them but the ones with just a circle or square of color are not the most creative... :D
