Scuderia Ferrari holds a proud history in the shield worn. The Cavallino or rampant stallion was a symbol of strength for the Italian citizens as far back as 1692. After winning at Ravenna Enzo was gifted this symbol in 1923 by the parents of Francesco Baracca, a downed bi-plane pilot. This symbol he wore with pride until 1929 when Scuderia Ferrari was opened in Modena. The shield represents protection while the Italian flag frames the top and S F flanks the horse’s hind leg. The yellow back drop is the color of Modena representing the roots of the team. There have been slight variations of the shield which was traditionally saved for racecars and now is displayed on some production vehicles. The SF90 is a proud moment for the company signifying more than just innovations in technology.
