Animals in logos of large advertising brands
There are several companies that have decided to place an animal as its commercial image. We continually observe humanized to obtain from them a unique characteristic of their being, thus the fox means intelligence, the eagle the freedom, the vulture opportunism or the pig (when taking advantage of it all) is associated with positive aspects (a piggy bank). I invite you to vote and comment on your favorite logos. ** Suggestions are accepted **
Camell - Dromedary.
In 1912, the American company RJ Reynolds introduced cigarettes with a mixture of Turkish flavor to the market. The name with which they baptized this tobacco was Camell and they decided to draw a camel in the pack. Later, this company went to the Barnum and Bailey circus in Winston-Salem to take pictures of camels and dromedaries. And the chosen one was a dromedary to illustrate their packets, but they decided not to change the name of the tobacco.
Bacardí - Bat.
Facundo Bacardí y Masó distilled rum by hand in the mid-19th century at his home in Havana and decided to buy a distillery whose roof was always full of bats. Facundo wanted to distinguish his rum with a symbol that was easily recognized because in those years many people could not read. His wife, Extensive, wanted the bat to become his symbol for living this animal in the distillery.
Monkey Anise - Monkey.
The Catalan businessman Vicente Bosch was the owner of an anise distillery in addition to owning merchant ships. In one of his ships he was brought from America by a monkey that soon inhabited the distillery, being known at the end of the 19th century as the monkey distillery, and his anise as the monkey anise. After the time it was decided to put on the label the figure of the monkey with the face of Vicente Bosch.
Alfa Romeo - Snake.
Originally the company was called ALFA, an acronym for Anonymous Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, and changed the name to the current Alfa Romeo when in 1915 Neapolitan engineer Nicola Romeo took over. But it was in 1910 when he adopted as symbols the red cross on a white field of the insignia of Milan and the Biscione, the snake on a blue field symbol of the Visconti (a historical family of Milan), as well as the city of Milan itself. Since its inception the logo has had this representation that has been modernized. The biscione, a large ground snake, is also known as "Vipera" or "Viper", and is part of the heraldic shield in which a blue snake is swallowing a human being: sometimes it is a child and sometimes a Moor. It is also said that she was taken from a coat of arms of the Saracens during the crusades. Even the Inter Milan football club has this symbol, although with some flowers instead of the human being.
Peugeot - Leon.
The Peugeot brothers, who originally owned a saw mill, requested in 1847 the goldsmith Justin Blazer to design a lion that would serve as a representation of the qualities of their products: strength, elasticity, speed. In 1899 these brothers began manufacturing bicycles and seven years later cars but maintaining the same Blazer shield that is preserved today.

Scott - Dog.
It is a corporation based in the United States that manufactures paper products. Scott Paper was founded in 1879 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by brothers E. Irvin and Clarence Scott, and is considered the first company that brought the current concept of toilet paper roll to market. They began selling paper towels in 1907, and paper napkins in the 1930s. In 1995 Scott Paper merged with the Kimberly-Clark group that has retained the brand name.
Porsche - Horses.
Porsche's horse, a brand created in 1939 by Ferdinand Porsche, represents the coat of arms of the city of Stuttgart, a German town built on a few blocks and where the firm's first car was manufactured.
Red Bull - Bull.
The Austrian Dietrich Mateschitz is associated in the late eighties of the last century with a Thai businessman who sold a drink at gas stations to prevent drivers from falling asleep at the wheel. In the design of his brand appeared a bull and a sun. And from here the Red Bull is born. Later he adapted the taste to European taste by creating a drink that expresses power, energy, strength and value. Another version is that the drink contains a component called "bullfighting" and hence the name Bull (bull in English).
Fox - Fox.
Puma - Puma.
The logo was created in 1968, inspired by the cougar, a wild feline that is characterized by its speed, strength and agility. At first the logo had eyes and nose, which were eliminated in 1979. 
Jaguar - Jaguar.
Jaguar Cars is a manufacturer of cars and motorcycles. Founded in 1922 as "Swallow Sidecar Company" by William Lyons, it was renamed Jaguar Cars after World War II for the unfortunate connotations of the initials, SS. The company currently belongs to the Indian industrial and automobile group Tata Motors. Jaguar is known for its luxurious saloons and sports cars, market segments in which it has been since the 1930s. The company was independent until it became part of the national British Motor Corporation in 1966. In 1984 it emerged as a separate company in the stock market - one of the many privatizations of the Margaret Thatcher government - only to become part of Ford in 1989-1990. In 1999 he became part of Ford's new Premier Automotive Group with Aston Martin, Volvo and Lincoln. Land Rover was added to the group in 2000 after being sold by BMW.
Lacoste - Crocodile.
René Lacoste, a well-known French tennis player, earned the nickname of the Crocodile in 1927, when he promised to buy a crocodile skin suitcase from the Davis Cup captain if he could win the United States. One day, a friend of Lacoste, Robert George, sewed him on the pole with which he played a crocodile. This symbol achieved an important impact and this was the reason why the tennis player decided to partner in 1933 with André Giller, owner of a French knitwear company, to start making shirts with an embroidered crocodile.
Osborne - Bull.
Osborne commissioned his advertising agency in 1956 to design a symbol for his Veteran brandy to place on billboards on Spanish roads. The Osborne family closely related to the bullfighting world was the excuse that Manuel Prieto, an agency collaborator and fond of painting bulls, used to present the cut figure of a brave bull. The first fences were written Osborne-Sherry & Brandy, but a 1989 law prohibited road advertising and forced to leave only the silhouette; although the controversy did not end until these bulls were pardoned by the Government in 1995 so that they could remain in the carts as an identifying symbol, not only of Osbrone, but of a whole country.
Lamborghini - Bull.
In 1960, Ferruccio Lamborghini was the third Italian industrial agricultural machinery. Winemaker and winemaker, great taster of wine and life, then - he said later - nothing less than four Ferraris. "They only created problems for me - he said -; one day, tired of sending them to the workshop, I called Enzo to tell him that their cars were pure garbage. And he replied that a tractor manufacturer could not understand their cars." It is likely that Ferruccio's story was a bit exaggerated; It is possible, also, that the old Ferrari had a bad time, but, according to Lamborghini himself, that response was the origin of his incorporation into the automobile industry. What is certain is that he did it, and he did it exactly with the purpose of facing Ferrari. He bought a workshop near Modena and hired some outstanding craftsmen and technicians who had worked with Enzo Ferrari. In 1963, after experimenting with a prototype, he was ready to launch his first "anti-Ferrari". He thought then of the emblem of the new brand. "I adore the bull, Miura - he explained -; he is the noblest of animals and the most difficult to defeat, a true champion." So the logo was born with the bull Miura, the beast of the wild party that was to defeat Ferrari.
Playboy - Rabbit.
Hugh Hefner, in 1953, was looking for a logo for his erotic magazine Playboy. Its artistic director Arthur Paul designed in a record time the well-known bunny with a bow tie, although he also considered designing a moose. The rabbit was full-length in its first version but the passing of the years was leaving him with his head only.
Goldwyn Mayer Metro.
The official motto of the workshop, "Ars Gratia Artis", is a Latin phrase that means "Art for the sake of art." He was chosen by Howard Dietz, head of the workshop's publicist, in 1924. The logo studio is a roaring lion, surrounded by a circle inscribed with the motto study. The logo, which features "Leo the lion", was created by Dietz in 1916 for the Goldwyn Pictures and updated in 1924 for MGM use. Dietz based on the alma mater logo of his pet from Columbia University-the lion. Originally silent, the sound of the lion lion's roar was added to the movies for the first time in August 1928. Informal study of The motto is "more stars than there are in the sky", a reference to the large number of a list- Movie stars under contract with the company in the 1930s. This second motto was also coined by Deitz, and was probably used for the first time in 1932. The METRO-Goldwyn-Mayer name was first used in 1924.
Ferrari - Colt.
We all associate Ferrari with the image of the rampant horse. As well. Enzo Ferrari wins a race in which the prize is the talisman of the aviator Francesco Baracca who died during the war. This talisman is a horse on a black background. Enzo Ferrari adopts the talisman as his own and makes it the emblem of his brand.
Panda - Panda bear.
The name of this company dedicated to the development of antivirus systems comes from the group of friends that started it. A "panda" of friends.
