THANKS to its incredible range of groceries, home goods, clothing, and more, Walmart is the go-to store for many people across the globe.
The store is also easy to spot with its now very recognizable yellow "flower" logo, but it turns out, Walmart's logo has a much deeper meaning.
You may remember the days when the Walmart logo was simply the name hyphenated with a star in between "Wal" and "Mart.
But since 2008, the logo is just the unhyphenated store name followed by the yellow flower or burst.
Walmart revealed that its logo isn't actually a flower, but is a "spark," and it was inspired by the store's founder himself.
"It’s a symbol of the spark of inspiration Sam Walton had when he opened his very first store," according to a company statement obtained by Good Housekeeping.
"It’s a symbol of all of the great ideas that have helped to develop our company over the years. And it’s a symbol of the inspiration that’s inside all of us."
The company shared that each leg of the spark represents one of Walmart's key values: customer, respect, integrity, associates, service, and excellence.
