A truly great company logo becomes synonymous with its identity. Think about the McDonald's golden arches, Apple's apple, Coca-Cola's cursive typeface, Nike's swoosh and all the other iconic brand images that you remember.

This marks the first time in 18 years that Yahoo will overhaul its logo. It's part of the company's "30 days of change" marketing campaign, during which it will display one potential logo option on its various sites each day for the next 30 days before the final version is revealed Sept. 5.
