If you've ever held Swiss chocolate in your hands, you've probably noticed the mountain depicted. But what many people don't know is that inside that mountain is a bear that you can only see by looking closely.

Many attentive users have noticed a certain resemblance to "Pac Man" in the LG logo. Indeed, if you look closely, the "G" and the "L" form the famous game character. But this resemblance would in fact be a pure coincidence.
#5 Alfa Romeo
If you drive an Alfa Romeo, you've probably already noticed the characteristic snake eating a man in the logo. Those who know Italy know that this snake is also found on the coat of arms of the city of Milan.
And the logo of the next car brand also hides small but important details. The symbol was drawn with three brush strokes - like the word "Toyota" as a Japanese character, because the number 3 is considered a lucky number in Japan. The two ellipses are supposed to form the first letter "T" and symbolize the "heart" of the car and the heart of the customer, which unite and thus create a link between the two.
The arrow in the Amazon logo is quite striking. It points to the "a" and "z" and thus should show that the online retailer is rightly diversified and sends goods from "A" to "Z".

The American company also hides a small detail that many people only notice at second glance. If you look closely, you can see an arrow between the big "E" and the "x".
In the logo of "Formula-1", even an untrained eye should recognize the detail. Indeed, if you focus on the black surface in the middle of the symbol, you can clearly see a "1". Do you recognize it?
