Tour de France
Does the yellow circle represent the sun? Nope! Turns out, the yellow circle is actually a bicycle wheel. The “R” in “tour” is a person, and the “O” in “tour” is the back bicycle wheel.
London Symphony Orchestra
So, we thought the three-letter abbreviation was written out in a fancy script font – but we were wrong. The logo not only is an abbreviation of the London Symphony Orchestra, but it also represents an orchestra conductor. The “L” and “O” are his arms.
Are the L and the G cleverly configured into a smiley face, presumably the face of a happy LG customer? Nope. Eagle-eyed folks point out that if you tilt your head to the side, that smiley face actually looks like a modified version of Pacman. Perhaps an ode to the beloved arcade game character and the earlier days of personal technology? That’s up for speculation. According to LG, the logo stands for the world, future, youth, humanity and technology.
