The Rolling Stones logo was actually designed in tribute to the Hindu goddess of energy and empowerment, Kali. The red and black tongue-and-lips emblem typified rock ‘n’ roll’s power of free articulation and the awesome raw energy it portrays. The logo firmly resembles Mick Jagger’s iconic lips and his fiery mouth.
The logo was designed by the English art designer John Pasche for The Rolling Stones in 1970. It has been called the most famous logo in the history of popular music. The logo has remained on all post-1970 albums and singles by the Rolling Stones, in addition to the band’s merchandise (from t-shirts to fire lighters) and their stage sets.
