BUGATTI emblems, logos and badges - Origin, Meaning, History

bugatti bugatti
BUGATTI emblem


【 History and origin of Emblem and Logo 】

The BUGATTI emblem logo depicts the letters BUGATTI in a red oval, and the stylized letters EB above it is derived from the initials of the founder ETTORE BUGATTI.
There are two theories about why there are sixty dots around the edge. The 1st theory is that the sixty dots are derived from the pearls that symbolize luxury and pays honor to Carlo, the father of Ettore Bugatti, a professional designer of jewel products and created an elegant carved furniture. The 2nd theory is that the sixty dots are derived from the safety wires. The wires were used in early automobile manufacturing to prevent loosening of fastener parts such as bolts.
Unlike many other car manufacturers that have changed their emblem logos throughout the course of their company’s history, BUGATTI has retained the exact same design since the company was first founded in 1909.
