RVCA Logos – What do they mean?

Now we wanted to answer one of the most frequently asked question about RVCA – What does RVCA mean? A few years ago an entire Q&A session was held by RVCA to answer all kinds of questions by its loyal followers. So we were able to get this question and many others answered by RVCA founder PM Tenore himself. Check out the entire Q&A session with PM Tenore. So let’s see exactly how he answered this question:

Q: Why did you name the brand RVCA?
A: Because of the chevrons: VΛ. It represents the “balance of opposites.” RVCA is just an ambiguous name to support the VΛ and message.

So there you have it, it’s really all about the chevrons and the balance of opposites that it represents. The word RVCA is nothing more than a random term to support the chevrons. Plus, when you look at most RVCA logos you will see that the chevrons (VΛ) tend to be the most dominant or noticeable part of the entire RVCA logo.

  1. In his answer to your first and last questions he states “RVCA is an ambiguous…”. When he says the name there, does he say “ruca” or does he spell “R-V-C-A”?

    1. PM Tenore refers to the brand as “ruca” and does not spell it out. This also seems to be the case with any RVCA sponsored athletes. Thanks for the question and checking out Wild Child Sports!
