The Alfa Romeo logo is undoubtedly one of the most iconic car logos in history. It has undergone several changes throughout the years. The earliest logo of the company appeared in 1910, but not much is known about its exact origins. It is widely considered that the badge represents the coat of arms of the Visconti family (one of the most powerful and esteemed families of Milan) and the Red cross on a white background of Milan.
According to an urban legend, a serpent was seen in the 5th century AD that persistently terrified the people of Milan. It was hunted and killed by an archbishop of Milan named Ottone Visconti. The serpent wearing a crown is said to be a celebration of this brave act. The red cross on a white background, on the other hand, typifies the heroics of Giovanni Da Rio, the first person to mount the walls of Jerusalem and raise a cross there during the first crusade.
