Nike, the Goddess of Victory (Ephesus)

CAN YOU SPOT ALL 4 NIKE SWOOSH SIGNS? :)

It is said about the Nike, Inc. logo: "It also symbolizes the wing of Nike, the Greek Goddess of Victory, from which the company derived its current name." Also, there is a story that it represents a fold in her dress.
In addition, I found that the swoosh looks similar to the stalk of wheat she's holding in her right hand :)

With that being said, let's move to some unimportant stuff :D :

"She holds a wreath made from laurel leaves, an emblem of victory in her left hand; she is in a flying position. This comes from the Roman period and was discovered among the ruins on the Square of Domitian."
