MiniThe logo for Mini is a circular center portion with winged sides…and I’ve been unable to find the significance of the wings (please email me if you know!). Variations of this were used on some of the original Minis (badged as Austin Coopers), but it was a pretty subtle element. Most likely, given the design-centric nature of the new Mini, the wings have no real history at all, they just ‘look good’ – which is kinda what that car was all about anyway.
