Logos are undoubtedly an important part of branding a business.

Today, anyone who sees the golden arches would think of McDonald's, a bitten-into apple of the tech behemoth Apple, and a fairy tale castle of Walt Disney.

Logos do not have to be complicated to be good, but they do have to symbolise the company and give it an image that nothing else can provide.

And just like anything else, some logos are better than others in terms of design and its ability to give brand recall.
We found some logos that actually have meanings cleverly hidden in the design.
Take a look at them, and you will most not likely see them the same way again.
