basics The Prancing Horse, a symbol of courage and daring, originated as the personal emblem of Major Francesco Baracca, Italy's most successful fighter ace of World War 1 with 34 aerial victories in the course of 64 engagements against the enemy.

The red pony was derived by inverting the coat of arms of the 2nd cavalry regiment "Piemonte Reale" and the black was adopted as a sign of mourning after Baracca's death by his squadron, although logic suggest that the pony was always black. This argument is supported by the alternative theory that the Prancing Horse derives instead from the German city of Stuttgart.

In 1945 Eligio Gerosa, a young Milanese engraver, refined Ferrari's coat of arms.
