How Old Is The Mcdonald's Logo?

I wanted to do a McNew Year submission of the famous Mcdonalds logo.
McDonalds Corporation has become synonymous with fast food and has become one of the largest chains of fast food restaurants in the world. The McDonalds logo has become a symbol of international business expansion and has been termed as ‘part of Americanization and American cultural imperialism' as it is closely identified with US. The famous Golden Arches in McDonalds logo represent style, significance and a strong corporate identity. It was created by a graphic artist Jim Schindler in 1962 and the idea was first introduced by Dick and Mac McDonald as arch shaped signs on the sides of their then ‘walk-up hamburger stand’. From an angle, those arches looked like the letter “M” and thus, were incorporated in the McDonalds logo as a merger of the two golden arches together. The “McDonald’s” name was later added to the McDonalds logo in 1968. While the physical arches were dropped out from all the restaurants’ building design, The Golden Arches have remained in the McDonalds logo, and have branded the company.

The McDonalds logo is a registered trademark of the McDonald Corporation. Use of the logo here does not imply endorsement of the organization by this site.
