The hot air RE/MAX balloon is a corporate logo. The blue, white, and red RE/MAX hot air balloon first made its debut at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in 1978. Since then, it has become one of the most iconic corporate logos in North America and is recognized worldwide. The RE/MAX balloon fleet has grown to a staggering 108 balloons in 26 countries around the world.
There are a number of charity initiatives that involve the RE/MAX balloon. For example, in Northern Illinois, the balloon is used to teach public school students from ages 5 to 13 about science and history. The balloon fleet visits many special charitable events throughout the year. There’s certainly never a dull moment when the balloons and their pilots are present to offer rides to friends, family, colleagues, and employees of RE/MAX!
RE/MAX Balloon Above The Crowd
In Western Canada, there is a special RE/MAX team designated for events and, in particular, ballooning. Next time you’re at an event, make sure you look up. You might just see the RE/MAX balloon peacefully soaring “above the crowd”.
