I've also come to realise that Citroen's really got one of the best looking automotive logos around.

Thanks Voyager, for pointing me to the ever-reliable Google.

I just did, and lo and behold, Citroen really has very interesting history. Apparently, the logo comes from the double helical gears which Andre Citroen was credited for making into steel (from the original wooden version).

Citroen actually first started as a small gear cutting business in 1904. I wonder if these double helical gears are still being used in Citroen cars nowadays.

And does anyone know what does the word Citroen means?
