Founded on September 25, 1928, Motorola began its operations as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation and later in 1947, it changed the name to Motorola. It was split into two companies Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions in 2008. Motorola Mobility was later acquired by Google in 2011 for $12.5 billion.
Motorola’s first logo was simply its name spelled in black colour in a cursive running font. In June 1955, Motorola got its current logo that features a modified “M” in white colour on a round black background. The triangular peaks that form the “M” in the logo are symbolic of “leadership, progression and intentions to stay at the top of the domain”. Under the logo, Motorola is spelt in black bold letters.
