Turns out the Walmart logo isn't what you think it is

There are some logos designs we see so often that we don't stop to think about what they're actually meant to represent. Sure, some don't require much thought (we're fairly sure the Apple logo is an apple), but others are a little more abstract – like Walmart's. 

Some assume they're looking at a flower, others a sun. But according to a blog post on the company's website, those yellow lines in the shape of a circle represent something else entirely. (Looking for more inspiration? Check out the best logos of all time).
