Mystery Behind Starbucks Logo
By: Harsimren Pabla
Starbucks, the famous coffee restaurant, has an interesting myth related to its logo. It goes back to 1971, when Starbucks was at its beginning. A logo was being searched for that would capture the spirit of Seattle and represent the attitude of coffee. The logo was decided to be a Siren. Sirens were sea-nymphs that lived on an island, where they would lure people (sailors) with enchanting music. Later, they were given an image of a mermaid, which is now the logo that Starbucks uses.
