The German company FALCON of Ober Ramstadt ( Hessen ) was a short lived company ( 1921 - 1926) using the english name of a predatory bird. In fact the German word for falcon is "FALKE".  May be the company hoped to radiate international flair.  In 5 years they sold about 400 cars. It seems that not a single car survives today. The emblem is a very hard to find item.
