Vauxhall adopted the Griffin as its logo in 1915. The Chief Engineer and Designer, Laurence H Pomeroy, offered the prize of two guineas for the design of a new symbol. The brief was for a heraldic design, and the prize was won by a young apprentice called Harry Varley who proposed the image of a griffin, a mythical creature depicted on the coat of arms of Fulk le Breant, driving a “V” flag into the ground.
Once the Griffin had been selected, the logo itself proceeded to evolve over the years, with the design becoming progressively simpler.
