Largest Coca Cola Logo – Made from Bottles

Coca Cola Logo in Google EarthAccording to a post at the Google Earth Community (GEC) by ‘hugolvagancia’, the world’s largest Coca Cola logo is on a mountainside in Chile. The logo was made in honor of the 100th anniversary of coke (1986) and was made from 70,000 bottles of Coca Cola. The logo appears to be about 100 feet tall, and 400 feet wide (30 by 120 meters). Read about the history of Coca Cola at Wikipedia.
You can find this and dozens of other corporate signs visible in Google Earth in one of the longest running threads at the GEC. The thread was started in June of 2003 when the forums were dedicated to finds in the predecessor to Google Earth: Keyhole’s Earth Viewer. Keyhole was bought by Google in 2004 and rapidly redesigned into Google Earth which was released in June of 2005. For example, the first post was the Ford Motor Company logo on the top of their headquarters in Detroit.
