Fixation develops due the attract-ability of an object (logo). This could be food, beverage, hobby, person or even a pet. Why this happens is because of the unique features that define the object. Nature therefore, offers endless possibilities that define the Aww moment. Sometimes a flower may appeal so much that you would wish to embed it somewhere for inspiration. Similarly Multinational companies continuously use such symbols to frame their business agenda.

Several other companies that have animals as the logo icons include; Peugeot with the Lion, Ferrari with the horse, Jaguar, World wildlife fund with Panda, Lacoste with the crocodile, Playboy with the bunny, Premier league lion among others. This logos have remained in their original forms since the formation of the companies because of their simplicity, memorability and versatility but a few improvements in line with technology.
