Founded in 1841, Thomas Cook Group was a British travel operator and one of the oldest in the world. It offered packaged holidays and a group of airlines, including Thomas Cook Airlines and Condor in Germany, and was one of the oldest travel companies in the world until it filed for bankruptcy on 23 September 2019, closing all operations after 178 years.

Introduced after World War Two, this symbol combined the scallop shell emblem of pilgrims with the winged helmet of Mercury, Messenger of the Gods. A globe was also included for good measure. This logo featured on company letterheads and shop windows rather than brochure covers...although it did sometimes appear within brochures.

In 2001, following the acquisition of Thomas Cook by Condor & Neckermann, a new logo was introduced, combining the Thomas Cook name with the blue and yellow (representing sea and sun) "holiday" colours of C&N.

This logo continues to be used in India, and Thomas Cook India, which was sold by the Thomas Cook Group to Fairfax Financial in 2012, has never introduced the Sunny Heart logo.

2013–2019

ThomasCook 2013

In October 2013, the Thomas Cook Group of companies united for the first time in its history under one identifier, named the 'Sunny Heart'.

Following a series of financial difficulties, the company halted trading and entered compulsory liquidation on 23 September 2019, closing all operations after 178 years.

In November 2019, Chinese investment corporation Fosun International through Fosun Tourism Group (which already has the Thomas Cook venture in the country) acquired the Thomas Cook name and logo, along with Casa Cook and Cook's Club hotel brands. The brand will revived by Fosun in the first half of 2020.
