In later years, Francesco Baracca’s mother presented his prancing stallion emblem, the Cavallino Rampante, to Enzo Ferrari. The prancing horse has been the official symbol of the Scuderia Ferrari racing team since 1929, and of Ferrari automobiles since they began being manufactured. The roller coaster at Ferrari World on Yas Island Flying Aces, is named after him and themed to him.
