The Lincoln Star has been featured on the front of Lincoln vehicles since the 1950s, after undergoing many changes.

The Lincoln Motor Company got its start in 1917, when it manufactured aircraft engines for use in World War I. Only after the war did it begin producing automobiles.

Lincoln, named after President Abraham Lincoln, went through several badge changes. In the 1930's, the company used a coat of arms, featuring a knight's helmet atop a red cross.

One theory is that the modern Lincoln Star evolved from that coat of arms.

Another is that the cross represents a compass pointing to four corners of the earth. Others say the star represents a celestial body, symbolic of the brand's radiance.

However the Lincoln Star came to be, its simple design signifies luxury and elegance renowned the world over. Visit James Hodge Ford Lincoln Inc. to test drive a new vehicle in the Muskogee, Broken Arrow, Wagoner, Coweta, and Checotah area.
