Visa was originally launched in the United States in 1958 as BankAmericard, by Bank of America. The card was also licensed to banks in other countries, with each using localized brand names. In 1966, it was launched in the UK as Barclaycard, 1967 in France as Carte Bleue, and in 1968 in Canada as Chargex.




In 1976, all BankAmericard licensees were united under the new Visa brand. This logo kept the old BankAmericard colors and proportions.

In 2014, Visa debuted an updated version of logo removing the gold wedge leaving the logotype in gradient blue. The gold and blue stripes were restored as branding on the acceptance marks for Visa cards and advertising, but not as the corporate logotype.
