Meaning and history

Korean Air Logo history


The old Korean Air logo features an abstract depiction of a bird, which can also be interpreted as a plane. The design is placed in front of a white circle with a red outline, which supposedly represents the sun. The lettering “KAL” (Korean Air Lines) can be seen below.


The updated logo seems to have been inspired by that of Pepsi. At least the “O” made up of blue and white commas looks very much like the circle from the logo of the legendary soft drink.
