Lada is a Russian brand of passenger cars produced by VAZ (Volzhsky Avtomobilnyj Zawod). It was established in 1966 under an agreement between the USSR government and the Fiat concern.
Meaning and history
The history of the Lada logo began on April 19, 1970. The creator of the first logo was Alexander Dekalenkov, an employee of the Moscow directorate of VAZ, who made a sketch of the Cyrillic letter “V” (B), stylized as an Old Russian boat. The word “Tolyatti” was written under the image. Soon the text was removed, leaving only the graphic component of the emblem. The choice of such an idea can be associated with antiquity and the location of the city where the plant is located, with traffic, water and land roads.
Emblem and symbol
The emblem of the car manufacturer Lada depicts a boat – an ancient sea and river vessel, depicted in the shape of the letter B. Over time, the boat has changed and the original letter “B” was less and less visible.
