The story of Goddess

Nike and her siblings were close companions of Zeus, the dominant deity of the Greek pantheon. According to classical later myth, Styx brought them to Zeus when the god was assembling allies for the Titan War against the older deities. Nike assumed the role of the divine charioteer, a role in which she often is portrayed in Classical Greek art. Nike flew around battlefields rewarding the victors with glory and fame, symbolized by a wreath of Laurel leaves. Thats also how Nike got its logo.
