The Daihatsu logo is one of the simplest yet the most effective automobile logos ever presented. It represents the letter ‘D’ – the first one in the company name – in a unique shape. The name originated from two Japanese words – “dai”, the kanji spelling of the first letter of Osaka, where the company is headquartered, and “harsudoki seizo” (engine manufacture). Thus, the name carries quite a load of general information about what the company produces and where it is located.
