Barclays Logo

barclays logo

Barclays plc. is a major financial corporation, which was established in great Britain and has been operating since 1690. It is one of the world’s oldest banking groups.

Although the Barclays logo is officially thought to have originated in 1948, it goes back to the time of the bank’s foundation. Those were days when even business owners could hardly boast high literacy levels. The eagle was nothing less than a pictorial, with which the founders branded the bank, because they could not write the name.
