Most of us will never get to a car with the famous 'Cavallino Rampante' logo on it. However, you can at least have a Ferrari badge on your mobile phone.

This wallpaper brings the prancing horse to your mobile, set in front of the red color associated with the sports car maker. It's a decent quality image although you may find that some of your icons won't show up properly if they're yellow, red or black.

Fans of the racing team, or just Ferrari cars in general, will love this one.

Tis background wallpaper features the Ferrari logo. The famous symbol of the Ferrari race team is a black prancing stallion on a yellow shield, usually with the letters S F (for Scuderia Ferrari), with three stripes of green, white and red (the Italian national colors) at the top. The road cars have a rectangular badge on the hood (see picture above) and this race logo on the side.

On June 17, 1923, Enzo Ferrari won a race at the Savio track in Ravenna where he met the Countess Paolina, mother of Count Francesco Baracca, an ace of the Italian air force and national hero of World War I, who used to paint a horse on the side of his planes. The Countess asked Enzo to use this horse on his cars, suggesting that it would bring him good luck.

The original "prancing horse" on Baracca's airplane was painted in red on a white cloud-like shape, but Ferrari chose to have the horse in black (as it had been painted as a sign of grief on Baracca's squadron planes after the pilot was killed in action) and he added a canary yellow background as this is the color of the city of Modena, his birthplace. The Ferrari horse was, from the very beginning, markedly different from the Baracca horse in most details, the most noticeable being the tail that in the original Baracca version was pointing downward.
