    Earlier I was watching a nifty little video that told the true meaning behind some of the world's most iconic logos, and Toyota was one of them.

    Though Toyota will tell you its logo of three overlapping Ellipses symbolizes the hearts of their customers and hearts of their product, the 1990 debuted symbol is much more than just that. In fact, the Toyota logo actually spells "Toyota" and represents a piece of thread through a needle.

    A needle and thread, why?

    Well, the Toyota company was founded by Sakichi Toyoda back in 1924 when it invented the Toyoda Model G Automatic Loom. In 1929, the patent for that automatic loom was sold, which helped generate the starting capital for their automobile development that was lead by Sakichi's son. The needle and thread within the logo represent where the company started.

    All researched and watched information, but very interesting.

    Every letter starts/end when it intersects with another line/segment instead of the "A", should that count?
