Revealing the Reality: Deep meaning behind the logo of Walmart - The Santa Clarita Valley Proclaimer

THANKS to its incredible range of groceries, home goods, clothing, and more, Walmart is the go-to store

The store is also easy to spot with its now very recognizable yellow "flower" logo, but it turns out, Walmart's logo has a much deeper meaning

Walmart revealed that its logo isn't actually a flower, but is a "spark," and it was inspired by the store's founder himself

It’s a symbol of the spark of inspiration Sam Walton had when he opened his very first store
