Gotta disagree here - I've seen BMW literature which states the roundel is based on the idea of a prop wash, inasmuch as they originally built aircraft. If those are the colors of the Bavarian flag or province it may be a coincidence.


Logo was registered in 1917, the first airplane add was in 1929 that showed that they use BMW engines.
