For more than 125 years of its history, the GE logo has remained basically the same.  So far, there have been only subtle modifications.

GE logo meaning and history

GE logo history

General Electrics was established in 1992 by four co-founders. Its earliest logotype featured intertwined letters “G” and “E” (the company’s initials) in a beautiful cursive script. Elegant and refined as it was, the logotype obviously lacked legibility. The flaw was probably the reason why a new version was developed in 1900.
