The original Nestlé logo was based on Henri Nestlé family’s coat of arms, it was a reference to the family name, which means ‘nest’ in German.
Henri Nestlé adapted the coat of arms by adding three young birds being fed by a mother, to create a visual link between his name and his company’s infant cereal products. This trademark used from 1868.
The current Nestlé logo was simplified in 1995, young birds became two instead of three. The tree is supposed to represent an oak and the birds thrushes.
