History of an Icon

  • In 1922 the Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in Great Britain. In 1935, the name “Jaguar” was added.
  • Older Jaguar models featured logos that were variations on a leaping jaguar and a badge featuring a ferociously roaring jaguar face on a red and silver background.
  • The current leaping jaguar logo was introduced in 1945.
  • Designed to meet the core values of the automaker, the Jaguar logo was meant to symbolize “grace, elegance, performance, power, and the ambition to leap forward”.
  • Recent pedestrian safety regulations prohibit the use of bulging emblems on the front of vehicles, so Jaguar moved the leaping cat logo from the hood to the rear of the car. The roaring cat face is now featured on the grill of Jaguar vehicles.
  • Updated in 2012, the current leaping jaguar logo is a three-dimensional silver, metallic grey, and black figure on a white or black background.
