Logo1w - What is logo1w in Google ? Why Google give the Logo image name as logo1w ?

What is logo1w ?

logo1w is the name of Google logo. Its very interesting Google give their main logo name as logo1w.png and used image type as .png

Why Google give logo name as logo1w ?

I do not know, why Google has given the logo name as logo1w ? and I think Google did not use image optimization for this, because there was no use of giving name as logo1w.png. I think for better image optimization logo.png would be best and suitable name, but Google did not use this name.

After researching, I found that logo direct URL is (It is working)

I tried (return 404 Error Page)

Also, I tried (return 404 Error Page)

Both logo1.png and logo.png were not working. So, there may be any special reason Google give name as logo1w.png
