SANTA ANA, Calif. (PRWEB) December 28, 2012
The seventh-generation Corvette will debut Jan. 13, 2013, in Detroit and to start the countdown to 1.13.13, Chevrolet and Guaranty Chevrolet in Orange County previewed the new Crossed Flags logo for the new 2014 Corvette.
The new Crossed Flags logo was unveiled at Road Atlanta, where Corvette Racing celebrated a sweep of the 2012 production-based American Le Mans Series GT championships.
With the new Corvette, designers set out to build a world-challenging sports car with design, refinement, efficiency and driver engagement that is second to none. The result is a truly all-new Corvette for Orange County area drivers. There are only two carryover parts from the C6 used in the C7 – the cabin air filter and the rear latch for the removable roof panel.
“For Orange County area Corvette drivers and enthusiasts the all-new seventh-generation Corvette’s design represents a distinctive American high-performance sports car,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet in Santa Ana. “We are excited for the new Corvette to hit our showroom floors in 2013!.”
The Crossed Flags logo has been a hallmark of the Corvette since its 1953 introduction. It has always incorporated a pair of flags, one a racing checkered flag and other featuring the Chevrolet “bowtie” emblem and a French fleur-de-lis. The design has evolved over the years, and has been featured on more than 1.5 million Corvettes built between 1953 and today.
For the seventh-generation Corvette, the Crossed Flags design is a more technical, more angular and more swept appearance – in proportion that symbolizes the new car. It is also a more detailed representation, showing greater depth, color and attention to detail.
More than 100 variations were considered before the final design was selected.

FAST FACT: The first Corvette debuted as a concept car on Jan. 17, 1953 at the GM Motorama in New York City. That car originally featured an emblem with a checkered flag crossed with an American flag. Because use of the American flag was prohibited as part of a commercial property, the logo was changed to the fleur-de-lis/bowtie design when the Corvette went into production in June 1953.
