List of awareness ribbons

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a partial list of awareness ribbons. The meaning behind an awareness ribbon depends on its colors and pattern. Since many advocacy groups have adopted ribbons as symbols of support or awareness, ribbons, particularly those of a single color, some colors may refer to more than one cause. Some causes may be represented by more than one ribbon.

Colors and meanings[edit]

Ribbon Color Meanings
White ribbon Clear or pearl ribbon
  • Lung-cancer awareness. It was originally clear, referencing air and being too-often unnoticed, but evolved to primarily pearl or white for practical reasons, because a clear ribbon is not easily visible.[1][2][3] Some sources suggest clear or white as a subset of pearl for long-term-non-smoker/never-smoker lung cancer, but there is no evidence of lung cancer organization support for this distinction.[3]
Yellow ribbon Yellow ribbon
  • Traditional (in the U.S. and in Canada) symbol of support for military forces, especially those deployed overseas and in conflicts.
  • Rural Fire Service Queensland - A symbol of unilateral support of Rural Fire Brigades across the state of Queensland Australia (instituted by the Rural Fire Brigades Association Queensland {RFBAQ} at Rockhampton 16 September 2012 and tabled in Hansard by the Newman LNP Government 14 Oct 2014 "Matters of Public Interest 3311")[4]
