It’s easy to recognize fast food chains like Subway because of their world famous logo.

But how did these logos come about and what do they really mean?

Subway signs have white and yellow letters, with arrows coming from the letter “S” and the letter “Y.”

The reason for this simple development is not just aesthetic.

The arrows represent the entry and exit of a subway car and continue to represent the quick service that Subway employees provide to their customers.

Logos of other fast food chains, like McDonald’s, have more confusing meanings.

The golden arches we know and love really give the image of motherhood — the M-hump is said to look like a pair of breasts.

This symbol of motherhood aims to make customers feel comfortable and cared for.

McDonald’s competitor Wendy’s also seems to play with maternal instincts.

If you look closely at the shirt collar of the girl with the pigtail, red head, you’ll see the word “MOM” written down.

While the chain has denied these claims, it seems a bit suspicious.

The Starbucks logo is simpler.

The mermaid in the blue crown has a connection to the cafe’s roots.

The name Starbucks seems to have been chosen after the company’s founders learned that a business starting with the letters “st” would be a wise marketing move.

They came up with the name “Starbo”, which is reminiscent of one of the founders of the fictional ship from the Moby Dick novel.

When the name evolved into “Starbucks,” the business used maritime symbols in its marketing approach.

Just as a mermaid-like “whistle” (fictional character from Greek mythology) lures sailors to shipwrecks on their islands, so does Starbucks’ mermaid bring customers into the store.
