The first Barkas logo was designed by the designers of the GDR in 1961 and was a stylized letter b, whose side elements are stretched horizontally and turned into real wings.
The central element of the logo was reduced to the traditional circle. However, such an appeal to the speed symbols for the company producing special cars and light trucks was atypical. Therefore, the logo received its second birth. This time the center was the very name of the brand. To the left of the font are placed three rhombuses, placed in the form of an arrow pointing to the right. Such a new design has served a relatively short time and was used mainly not on the cars themselves, but in printing solutions.
The brand existed until 1991, after which it was declared bankrupt (after technical re-equipment, this production for 30 years of its existence did not know even once). The company planned to sell equipment at a low price (it was almost ready to be bought by representatives of the Russian car industry), but the crisis led to the destruction of these plans and the final termination of the brand.
