These rings represent the four companies that manufactured Audi in 1932. These companies were:
Auto Union (Audi)
Auto Union, Deutschewagen-Werk and Hochschutz were all motorcycle and car manufacturers. Wagon-F was a bicycle and motorcycle manufacturing company. These four companies decided to work together so that they could become a stronger competitor. They chose the name Audi, which is the German word for “hearing.” The name was chosen because Auto Union’s engines were known for their powerful and beautiful sound.
