Hyundai Motor Company (officially 현대 자동차 주식회사 = Hyŏndae Chatongch’a
Chusik-hoesa) is a South Korean automobile manufactor founded in 1967, doing
business worldwide and since 1998 part of Hyundai Kia Group. See also:
Its logo shows a stylized slanted "H" with round cutouts inside a horizontally lying elipsis. Apart from the litteral meaning, at this page it is said that the logo is also supposed to be symbolic of the company's desire to expand.
The ovaloid shape indicates the company's global expansion and the slanted, stylized 'H' is symbolic of two people (specifically the company and customer) shaking hands.
