  • Transbrasil’s logo was very popular here in Brasil – in that time the rainbow doesn’t appear for us as a gay symbol.
    It was a symbol of joy and tropical colors, reinforced with the stylized sun of it’s early visual identity.
    It symbolizes another kind of air company, a warmer and cozy way of flying, very different from the others, wich has very serious and tedious blue logos (a compass for VARIG’s logo, for example, or a simple logotype for VASP’s).
    After some years, the other two companies had it’s visual identity fully redesigned.
