MIESSE / BELGE


One of my all time emblem favorites:

The MIESSE started producing trucks and buses in 1905 in Belgium. Since 1932 vehicles were equipped for years with the British GARDNER diesel engines made under licence.

What do you remember from your bible reading ? Guess what MIESSE is showing.

It is St. Michel killing the Satan. What a strange idea for an autocar emblem.
I don´t know a second official vehicle emblem with a bible theme.
The St. Christopherus is an accessory emblem only.
