    Interesting bit of trivia about the 3 "ducks" on the older Cadillac emblems. Apparently, the Cadillac family was very religious.


    • The Merlettes: Commonly known as “the ducks,” these birds appear in trios to symbolize the Holy Trinity, with three on one side representing the nobility of the mother’s lineage and the others representing the father’s noble lineage. The use of the birds comes from the time of the Crusades.



    And....

    The ducks are actually merlettes, which is a mythical song bird, usually depicted as having no beak or feet. The merlettes were put on the Cadillac (car) crest because they were part the coat of arms of Antoine de laMothe Cadillac; French explorer who founded the city of Detroit in 1701. Cadillac (the explorer) used one set of three merlettes on his coat of arms to signify his nobility on both his father's side and mother's side; "Two in chief and one in base." The birds are also set in trios to represent the holy trinity.
