Jaguar on street

Learn All About the Jaguar Symbol

The dynamic and sophisticated style of a Jaguar is distinct. And, so is the iconic Jaguar emblem. Irvine drivers who see that powerful, leaping cat will instantly identify it with sleek, classic luxury performance cars that make Jaguar one of the top car manufacturers in the world. Learn more about this history of the Jaguar logo at Jaguar Newport Beach.

History of the Iconic Jaguar Symbol

  • In 1922 the Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in Great Britain. In 1935, the name “Jaguar” was added.
  • Older Jaguar models featured logos with variations of a leaping jaguar and a badge featuring a ferociously roaring jaguar face on a red and silver background.
  • The current jumping jaguar logo was introduced on hood ornaments in 1945.
  • The Jaguar logo was designed to symbolize “grace, elegance, performance, power, and the ambition to leap forward,” which were the core values Jaguar represents.
  • Because recent safety regulations prohibit the use of bulging hood ornaments, Jaguar moved the leaping cat logo from the hood to the rear of the car. You will not find the roaring cat face 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.
