Logo for a company trading grain and other agricultural products. The name derives from the Latin word horreum. The shape, color and construction of the logo are to emphasize agricultural values. A horreum (plural: horrea) was a type of public warehouse used during the ancient Roman period. Although the Latin term is often used to refer to granaries, Roman horrea were used to store many other types of consumables; the giant Horrea Galbae in Rome were used not only to store grain but also olive oil, wine, foodstuffs, clothing and even marble (Wikipedia citation).
