"ELGÉ" is the initials of Léon Gaumont, who founded the company in 1895. The daisy has been used in most of Gaumont's logos since.
Similar to the previous logo, except that the pattern on the daisy is removed, and the letters "P" and "L" are removed.
Gaumont Films Cinema
This is the first color Gaumont logo.
There is an animated version of this logo which changes color, although it was only used on an experimental color film. There is also a golden version of this logo that was seen on the 1915 short film L'embusqué, and a Russian version of this logo.
Similar to the previous logo, except the daisy has been changed, and it was put in a circle.
PAX was a film projector/format developed by Gaumont.
Gaumont Film Company
A previous belief was that the symbol on the middle-left is the logo for Pathé-Gaumont-Metro-Actualités, which was a joint venture between Pathé, Gaumont, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. This has been proven false, as it was now attributed to Franco Film Aubert, and their Gaumont Franco Film Aubert joint venture. The symbol on the right appeared to be a naked man holding reels with filmstrips. It is unknown what the bird stands for.
This logo also appeared as an animation.
The daisy returned in 1970. The animated logo was nicknamed "Daisy of Doom" because it had red smoke in the background and had a sinister fanfare playing throughout.
A yellow version exsits seen on the 1983 Italian film, Lontano Da Dove.
