The griffin shines brighter than ever

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

Since then, the four metre wide symbol has rotated three to four 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.
