The griffin shines brighter than ever

The griffin shines brighter than ever

For more than 20 years the eye-catching griffin symbol has been a landmark in Södertälje. It was placed on the roof of Scania’s head office building back in 1996 to help visitors find their way.

Since then, the 4 metre wide symbol has rotated 3 to 4 times per minute or about 32 000 000 revolutions in total. Following a complete renovation this huge sign has now been remounted, with Scania’s updated symbol shining brighter than ever.

In February 2017, the sign was taken down to undergo renovations.
