If your spiritual animal is snakes, you may like a logo with a snake pattern.
These days, you'll find snake logos used widely by a variety of businesses. Such as WHO, Alfa Romeo, and Ford Mustang Shelby are all with snake in their logos.
Why do car manufacturers choose a car logo with snake?
Around the globe, the serpent carries potent symbolism. The Greeks considered snakes sacred and used them in healing as their way of honoring Asclepius.
Historically, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. The ouroboros is a symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life.
Considering these factors many car companies opt for this design with the hope that having one will help them reach the creative they want to reach.
Let’s take a look! Below are 5 car logos that use snake imagery to describe their product or company.
Zarooq Motors is a United Arab Emirates car manufacturer of high-performance cars, based in Dubai. Zarooq Motors is the first to manufacture the chassis, the car body and to assemble a production series automobile in the UAE.
Zarooq Brands themselves as "Supercars Born In the Desert", probably alluding to their origins in the UAE, a country known for its love of luxury hypercars and its desert.
The Dodge Viper is a sports car that was manufactured by Dodge (SRT for 2013 and 2014), a division of American car manufacturer FCA US LLC from 1991 through 2017, having taken a brief hiatus in 2007 and from 2010–2013.
The viper logo has been representing this automobile for over two decades when the very first Dodge Viper rolled off the assembly line. The version displayed in this logo is the second generation emblem that represented the Viper from 2003 until 2010.
The Shelby Mustang is a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1968, and from 1969 to 1970 by Ford. Following the introduction of the fifth generation Ford Mustang in 2005, the Shelby nameplate was revived as a new high-performance model, this time designed and built by Ford.
The 1965–1966 cars were the smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models. These cars are often called "Cobras", which was the Ford-powered AC-based two-seat sports car also produced by Shelby American during the same period. Both models use the Cobra emblem, similar paint scheme, and the optional "Cobra" valve covers on many GT350s that were part of a marketing tie-in by Shelby, as well as one of his iconic symbols.
Alfa Romeo is one of many Italian luxury car brands, founded by Frenchman Alexandre Darracq as Società Anonima Italiana Darracq (SAID), a company that would produce and sell special Darracq models for Italy. The brand is known for sporty vehicles and has been involved in car racing since 1911.
Alfa Romeo's badge is made in round shape which encloses heraldic red cross, the huge snake eating a man and golden Alfa Romeo letters which are located on the top of the circle. Milano's writing is underneath. Nothing is known for sure about the fact why the founder chose such shape for his company’s logo.
The right side, a giant serpent/dragon gobbling up a red man, is the symbol of the influential Visconti family of 11th century Milan.
