The monochromatic 1971 Quaker Oats Company Logo was created by [[Saul Bass]], a graphic designer known for his motion picture title sequences and corporate logos. The current logo was painted by [[Haddon Sundblom]] in 1957.The man on the box is [[Province of Pennsylvania]] founder, namesake and Quaker [[William Penn]].
 
The company has no formal ties with the [[Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)]]. When the company was being built up, Quaker businesspeople were known for their
honesty ([[Truth]] is often considered a [[Quaker testimony]]). ''[[The Straight Dope]]'' writes "According to the good folks at Quaker Oats, the Quaker Man was America's first registered trademark for a breakfast cereal, his registration taking place on September 4th, 1877. "The name was chosen when Quaker Mill partner Henry Seymour found an encyclopedia article on Quakers and decided that the qualities described -- integrity, honesty, purity -- provided an appropriate identity for his company's oat product."<ref>{{cite web

This was because of the Quakers' [[Testimony of Simplicity]] - they did not want to show off their wealth with expensive clothing. Quakers currently do not tend to dress in that manner - they might instead avoid clothing with brand names advertised.
 
Some Quakers are uncomfortable about the company's association, as the Quaker Oats brand is, in general, better known than the Society of Friends. This leads to confusion, with many members of the public assuming that Quakers have a link with the company, or dress as shown on the company's logo. In addition, it could be argued that the company's use of the Quaker name is dishonest because of the lack of any real involvement with [[Quakerism]], or Quaker values.{{who}}
