There was a discussion a while back about the "unknown" flag symbol that appears on some 850R models. When I was visiting my local Volvo dealer a few months ago, I saw this symbol on the back of a black 1995 Volvo 850R. I had never seen this before, but it is supposed to represent the 850's racing heritage in the BTCC, ATCS, and STCC touring car races.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.volvotuning.com/pictures/850_emblem.jpg"> <P>-Drew

That is my picture!! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> The flag emblem came standard on the T-5Rs. I bought it at my dealer for about $25. <P>

Just want to clarify a little bit. The IPd ones are not really the same as the one volvo sells. The one from Volvo is much nicer made with hard plastic while the IPd version is a "photo-copy" version made with soft plastic. I have a couple of the IPD ones laying around in my house, I got them for free when I was in some Volvo meets. Here is a link to a bigger pic of my Volvo one. <A HREF="http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/tlui99/850.gif" TARGET=_blank>http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/tlui99/850.gif</A> <P>
