There is a simular lion in the flag of Franche-Comté, where Peugeot started making coffee and pepper mills about 200 years ago. They still make very good pepper mills.

It's called a Rampant Lion and it's used in many logos.

It is similar to a Peugeot badge, but I don't think that particular image can be traced back to Peugeot. It's just too different from anything I have seen. I could be wrong - and feel free to tell me if I am.

I would say an old Peugeot logo too. It also looks like the Lowenbrau (beer) logo, but the tail is different.

What is the logo on? It looks like a steel or aluminum bottle, but it's hard to tell.
