History of the Delta Air Lines “Widget” Logo

It is intended to reflect the company’s roots in the Mississippi River Delta Region in Monroe, La.

The Greek letter “Delta” influenced the shape of the company’s symbol.

The inside of the triangle looks like the wings and tail of a plane flying overhead.

The triangle points to the sky where the company’s planes fly and represents the pinnacle of professional achievement.

The white “V” is the swept wing of a jet.

The flat base is the solid foundation of Delta Air Lines.

The red is for the flame of leadership that drives it upward.
