I always liked the look of this logo. Here’s the origin:

“Mitsubishi” is a combination of the words “mitsu” and “hishi.” “Mitsu” means three. “Hishi” means water chestnut, and the word is used to denote a rhombus or diamond shape. As customary, “hishi” is pronounced “bishi” when it forms a latter part of a word, hence the combination of “mitsu” and “hishi” reads “mitsubishi.”
