Meaning and history

Proton Logo history

The company’s name, Proton, is a derivative from Malaysian for “National Automobile Company”, which is “PeRusahaan OTOmonil Nasional”. The Proton logo design concept is sharp and stylish and is a tribute to the brand’s motherland.
The Proton logo is composed of a badge with a wordmark placed in its upper part.
The wordmark in all capital letters is executed in a clean and confident sans-serif typeface, with wide letters. The nameplate is colored yellow, which makes a good contrast with the deep blue of the emblem’s background.
Proton Logo
The Proton emblem is a shield-like figure, outlined in yellow and with a bright green circle in the center of it, beyond the wordmark. The brand’s symbol, Tiger’s head is executed in yellow and located in a green circle. Tiger is a very significant animal for Malaysia and it is drawn on the National Coat of Arms.
Tiger is a symbol of strength and courage, it is a representation of the brand’s power and masculinity. The sharp cuts of the tiger’s image resemble another heraldic symbol of Malaysia — the 14-point yellow star, which can be seen both on the national flag and coat of arms of the country.
