The company’s name, an acronym for Bayerische Motoren Werke (Bavarian Motor Works), reflects its fundamental nature. BMW is a multinational German company that manufactures cars and motorcycles.

Logo and slogan

The company’s logo is inspired by a flying fan, the flag of the German state, and blue and white are the main colors of Bavaria, as the company’s headquarters are in Munich, Bavaria. The four-cylinder engine is an important part of BMW’s legacy, as these engines were present in most of BMW’s economical cars, so the company’s headquarters was designed in the form of a four-cylinder engine. The company has produced many models of cars over the years, and all of them are distinguished from other cars by the presence of a pair of front grilles at the front of the car that resemble the shape of a kidney.


BMW used the following slogans in different years:

  • Sheer Driving Pleasure.
  • The Ultimate Driving Machine.
  • The Ultimate Driving Experience.
