Meaning and history

Corona Extra Logo history


Corona’s brand strategy revolves around the idea of “the beach state of mind”. No other beer brand better represents the idea of relaxing in an exotic paradise and the philosophy of living a carefree life.
The Corona brand logo is very clean, simple and iconic. It has a centered layout, clear lines and a vivid color contrast.
The Corona Extra logo is modern and premium, but still retains the Corona heritage. It consists of a bold gothic typeface, a yellow medallion with ‘La Cerveza Mas Fina’ (the finest beer) lettering and the crown on top, and two griffons – legendary creatures with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion, the head and wings of an eagle, and an eagle’s talons as its front feet.
