Mercedes-Benz was founded in 1926 by Karl Benz's company Benz & Cie. and Gottlieb Daimler's company, Daimler Motoren, an automotive brand formed by the merger of Gesellschaft. It was established in Stuttgart, Germany.
In 1897, the Austrian merchant living in Nice, France and Austrian Consul General in Nice, Emil Jellinek, visited the Daimler factory and bought a car. Having good relations with the international financial world and the aristocracy, Jellinek has attracted great interest in the French Riviera with its Daimler car. Later, Jelinek named a Daimler racing car equipped with a 1899-horsepower engine in 23, and named her eldest daughter Mercedes and took part in a race in Nice with this vehicle and came in first. After this success, Jelinek ordered 36 cars to the Daimler factory and required these vehicles to be named “Mercedes”.
Upon the sales success achieved by Emil Jelinek, Daimler decided to name the vehicles it manufactured as “Mercedes” since 1901. Mercedes is a popular name in Spanish-speaking countries. It is the Spanish name of the planet Mars as a word. It also means grace and grace. It was registered as Mercedes brand name on June 23, 1902. As of September 26, 1902, it was protected by law.
In the early years of his job at the engine plant in Deutz, the company's founder, Karl Benz, put a star emblem on the top of his house with views of Cologne and Deutz, saying that this star will represent success and strength one day and will shine on his factory. It symbolizes the universality of Yıldız Daimler, motor vehicles "on land, water, air". It was registered in 1909.
In 1916, the circumference of the star was turned into a circle with four small stars and the name Mercedes.
In 1926, with the Daimler-Benz merger, the wreath of Benz's laurel leaves surrounded the star.
