A new piece of the 2014 C7 Chevy Corvette puzzle has arrived in the form of a new logo. The Crossed Flags symbol shows a much more angled v-shape with a 3D feel and more textured coloring. The logo comes with the announcement that the next-generation Corvette C7 will be officially revealed in Detroit on Jan. 1, 2013. 

“The all-new, seventh-generation Corvette deserved an all-new emblem,” said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. “The new Crossed Flags design reflects the character of the next Corvette. The flags are much more modern, more technical, and more detailed than before – underscoring the comprehensive redesign of the entire car.”
