today’s random little fact was actually something that i happened across whilst at work 😬 … is there any better way to make a day worthwhile than to accidentally learn a fact?
i was actually supposed to feed this on to another team … but i decided to keep it for myself instead 😏
#tdil the meaning behind the famous audi four rings logo oooo <- that’s the logo in a none cool fashion 🙃.
now, i know that sounds like it’s going to be super boring … but bear with, it’s actually pretty interesting. unlike a lot of company logos, the audi one has a lot of legit history behind it 👍🏻. shall we get started?
first of all, it’s worth noting that the four rings have nothing to do with the olympics 🙈 they may both share the ring thing but they aren’t associated in any way!
instead, the logo is actually the symbol of an alliance between audi and three other german car manufacturers that occurred back in 1932 (note: audi started in 1909 not the 1930s).
each of the manufacturers within the alliance had a different focus … which was cool – audi was all about deluxe mid-size cars, dkw looked after small cars and motorbikes, wanderer concerned itself with mid-sized cars and horch high-end luxury vehicles. combined, they formed auto union ag.
in 1966, they became a volkswagen subsidiary and in 1985, auto union ag became one company under the name that we know and love today – audi.
brucie bonus fact!! the name ‘audi’ came about due to the last name of its founder ‘august horch’ … not quite seeing the link yet? i didn’t either 😅. apparently, ‘horch’ in german means ‘listen/hear’ … listen in latin is ‘audi’ #tadaaaaa
how’s that for a random fact?! it’s totally another one that you can use in a pub quiz one day 😬. maybe that should be something that i do 🤔 the “stuff my brain learned pub quiz interactive board game (in vr)” 😏 … hell.yes. 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑
anyhew, that’s all from me today! this one was a quick one but i think it was still fairly interesting 🙂 enjoy it when you’re in the aforementioned pub quiz or a traffic jam stuck behind an audi.
au revoir y’all 🚗 #tdil
well, how about that?! i bet you didn’t know that didn’t you? (unless you did … in which case, why are you still reading?) anyway, feel like some more random life facts? just go ->here<-
(as you can probably tell, that’s audi’s logo 🙃 as such, it’s copyrighted to them … as it’s theirs 😳 hope they dont sue me…)
