The American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) logo was designed to bring together elements of the trucking industry. The shield represents the shape of Federal Highway Markers; the wheel symbolizes the momentum of a great industry; the bold stripes signify the open road; and the colors red, white and blue are the colors of America.
