The origin of the Shell brand is linked to the origins of the Shell Transport and Trading Company. In 1833, the founder’s father, also called Marcus Samuel, founded an important business to sell seashells to London collectors. Collecting shell specimens in the Caspian Sea area in 1892, the young Samuel realised that there was potential in exporting lamp oil from the region and commissioned the world’s first oil-carrying ship, the Murex, to enter this market. By 1907, the company had a fleet of oil tankers.
The Shell emblem is one of the best-known trade symbols in the world. Known as the “pecten” for the seashell, the giant oyster or Pecten maximus, on which it was based, the current version of the logo was designed by Raymond Loewy and introduced in 1971 after undergoing several changes during the 20th century. The corporate colors red and yellow, are related to the colors of the flag of Spain because the first service stations of the company were in the State of California which has strong historical ties with Spain.
