Nike

We all heard about Nike, a company mostly known for its shoes (at least that's how they started). But do you know the reason behind the name and symbol of this gigantic company?

A few months ago I was curious about the reason for the company's symbol. So I looked it up. The company takes it name from the Greek goddess named "Nike" which means victory in Greek. Now, I could not find the reason behind the company's famous symbol, but here is a stone carving of the goddess. I think it would be a safe bet to say that the inspiration for the symbol came from this carving.

Nike, the Greek goddess.
