Name and Logo
Mir is the last name of the founder of the company, Frances Mir. Although MIR is a last name, because it’s in capital letters, it often gets mistaken as an acronym.
The olive branch in the logo is a symbol of peace, which goes hand-in-hand with “Mir,” a Russian word variation for “peace.”
