Did you know? The familiar Phillips 66 shield was created to subtly mimic the famous U.S. Route 66 sign logo. The Phillip’s design, introduced in a black and orange color scheme, would be in use for nearly 30 years! A new red, black and white version was introduced in 1959 and is still in use.
For thirty years, from the late 1930s until the 1960s, Phillip’s “highway hostesses” (registered nurses hired by the company) made regular and unannounced visits to Phillips 66 stations to inspect the station’s restroom facilities to ensure that they were ‘sparkling clean’ and well stocked. This group of fastidious and tidy ladies, who also assisted Phillip’s customers by suggesting suitable local dining and lodging facilities, were actually called the “Sparkle Corps”!
