The stories of the Mercedes star and the shrub wreath started independently from each other – 17 years before the merger: on 6 August 1909, Benz and Cie. presented an application to have the “Benz” lettering encompassed by a tree wreath enrolled as a trademark to the Imperial Patent Office.
This image was entered on the Register of Trademarks on 10 October 1910. Daimler‑Motoren‑Gesellschaft had effectively connected for legitimate security for the Mercedes-Benz star on 24 June 1909. It was entered on the Register of Trademarks on 9 February 1911.
Thinking back, the way that both auto producers enrolled their new trademarks in the late spring of 1909 appears to reflect the occasions of 1886, since this was when Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz concocted the auto fueled by the quick running inner burning motor without having any information of each other.
Around 23 years after the fact, the two as yet contending organizations pointed the path ahead with their new image images, by instantly utilizing them as an identification and seal on their individual vehicles.
At last, on 18 February 1925, both brands enrolled their new shared logo – Daimler’s Mercedes star in Benz’s tree wreath. This was a very typical activity in suspicion of the merger, which got to be compelling on 28 June 1926. It was from these beginnings that the Mercedes-Benz trademark still used right up ’til the present time created.
The blend of the star with a wide ring and the “Mercedes” lettering in 1916 pre-empted components of the Mercedes‑Benz seal that seemed later. Four little stars in the round strip grabbed the subject of the focal image.
In November 1921, DMG then enrolled a striking star in a ring as a symbol – explicitly additionally for the utilization as a three-dimensional figure on the radiator. The comparing trademark was enrolled on 2 August 1923. In this new position on the radiator top, the upright, remain solitary star was much more effectively unmistakable than the reliefs on the radiator, a large portion of which were made of an indistinguishable metal from their bases. Furthermore, in spite of the fact that this plan had a honorable look, it was hard to perceive when the auto flew past at fast.
