Nissan LogoIf you’ve found yourself driving around Port Orchard, WA wondering the story behind the stylish Nissan logo on new Nissan vehicles, then this brief history is for you:

  • Red Sun Logo – The story of the Nissan logo goes all the way back to the 1930s, when Datsun was the exported name brand for vehicles built by Nissan Motor Company. At that time, the Datsun logo included a red sun—associated with Japan, the land of the rising sun—with the Datsun name foregrounded with a blue rectangle around the lettering. By the mid 1980s, the Datsun line was discontinued, at which time Nissan inherited the red sun logo.
  • Sleek Silver – By the late 1980s, the red sun turned silver, the rectangle surrounding the lettering became gray, and the lettering became black. Over the years, slight variations have been made on this silver logo to make it more sharp and modern.
