The overriding threefold motif of Texaco logos has emphasized the colour red, the shape of a five-pointed star, and the letter T. Texaco is short for "The Texas Company".
1963-1966 (Secondary), 1966–1981 (Primary)
This logo was introduced in 1963, but it was not used as the primary logo until 1966.
1981-1999 (primary), 1999-present (secondary)
In 1981, the Texaco trademark changed to a white star with a red capital "T" inside a red circle. It is a modified version of the 1963 logo.
As of 1999, the "TEXACO" typeface was dropped and only the 1981 symbol remains. On February 8, 2002, Texaco merged with Chevron.
