Joyce sent us her ribbon design inspired by the feeling that the only thing that makes sense for COVID-related ribbons is tie-dye. She suggests orange and white (peace, clarity, vitamin c, sun, vibrancy) similar to her above image suggestion. Joyce feels that everyone will recognize the tie-dye and immediately differentiate it with 2020 and the enormous popularity of the DIY and fashion trends. A simple two color tie-dye is more pleasing to the eye, is gender-neutral, is a peaceful tie-dye hue and would capture so much feeling for all of us.
Allison Chevela submitted the above ribbon in loving honor of her dad, Eugene T Gagnon Sr. 01/27/1942 - 01/26/2021. Her COVID-19 awareness ribbon submission reads: Forever in my heart! Colors: Earth colors as people all across globe have affected by covid-19. 1. Deep sky blue for the bodies of water, and our sky. 2. Reddish orange for the sun and flowers. 3. Forest green for the valleys and forests. 4. The yellow on the dove for light to light our way. 5. The brown on the dove for all the other animals and critters on our earth. 6. The purple on the angel is for honor, respect, and compassion for each other as grief, sorrow, love, and happiness have a universal meaning. Designs and Symbols: 1. The waved pattern represents the perseverance and continuity of humankind to push forward with force and overcome obstacles like a powerful wave. 2. The dove is for hope for those suffering illness from the virus or treatment. 3. The angel is in honor of those who fought hard yet lost their life to the virus.
I drew this ribbon because when I think of COVID-19, I think of darkness surrounded by a muddled, confused grey area. Whether that darkness is because of death, depression or some other cause, that is up to you. I designed this completely by myself and I think it reflects COVID-19 perfectly - Submitted by Jennifer S.
Ashley D. contacted Disabled World in regards to the creation of a COVID-19 awareness ribbon: I had a design in mind and an example to attach that I wanted to share with you. Ashley is an RN and shaken by this pandemic that has affected our world. In her own words: I'm most upset over the fact that these victims are literally dying alone. The black represents loss/mourning and the yellow dots represent COVID-19 itself, as it appears to resemble yellow dots under a microscope.
Kirsten Lind contacted Disabled World and included his illustration of a COVID-19 Awareness Ribbon - This is my copy drawn by me. I have someone from Texas in New York on the Front-line. Kirsten's description of the design reads: Ribbon, white for our country. Red and Blue for all they do. Silver outline keeps it all together with their brave hearts and gifted talents, they risk it all to help.
Angela A. submitted these ribbon designs - I handmade these ribbons to represent Covid-19 in Maryland and the United States. They were given to Staff at Sinai hospital here in Maryland, sent to the Governor, and will be given out to those on the # list. I crocheted some and again the others were handmade in the picture. The colors are Maryland Flag and the United states flag. Every state should have one created using their flag colors along with United States flag (side-by-side) because we are all being affected by this pandemic and it represents everyone.
Red and yellow Coronavirus awareness ribbon pin. Nicole B. RN a Registered Nurse in San Diego, California was looking for an awareness ribbon for their hospital staff and was able to come across a great covid awareness ribbon that is gaining popularity. For her, as a nurse, it resembles the colors associated on the actual virus. Nurses work first hand with covid patients. Many of the staff have been infected with this virus and one of their co-workers passed away due to complications. Nicole feel like this would be a great thing to make official to boost morale and in support of survivors and front-line workers. Their staff are proud to wear the red and yellow covid ribbon in support of all the hard work that is being done.

Sharon N. submitted her Corona virus designs to Disabled World - I created an awareness ribbons to show my appreciation, in return, my kindness at this horrific time. First, the red circles represents the red nodules of the Corona virus. Second, the black color represents those who have passed away and identifies the strength, and the power of the doctors, nurses, and many other workers who have put their lives, in line, to help us all.
Denise G. wrote in and told us: Attached is my idea for a COVID-19 ribbon design idea. It shows that the virus does not play favorites. You can catch it regardless of race, sex or age. And to help stop the spread wear a mask. It has a double meaning for all the medical help that work so hard wearing masks everyday and to the people who are helping to stop the spread. They are hanging on doors now and only paper would love to see made and worn.

COVID-19 Awareness Ribbon Discriptions
1 - My brother and I are trying to start a campaign in memory of our Aunt, and for those lost to covid. Its Red White and Yellow. RED for Covid, White for those taken so innocently, Yellow for distancing.
2 - Since there are so many ribbon colors and designs for many disabilities already in use, may I suggest, that as a nation we make better use of our American Flag and a red/white/blue ribbon. By putting out our flag, which many people do already, it may help to show we are "one nation together" fighting this Virus. Americans are fighters, we are strong and caring and we pull ourselves together when times get tough. An extra red/white/blue ribbon tied to a tree could help bring more awareness. Just a thought. Why come up with something new? Use what many might already have - Donna L. G.
3 - I think a COVID-19 ribbon should be red, white, blue, and black with a dove - Roseanne W.
4 - You were asking for ideas for a Corona virus ribbon to honor first responders - why not use the standard ribbon with a light blue to dark blue transition - or a ceil blue - the colors of our scrubs - Susan G.S.
5 - Kyle B. and Rio A. sent us this suggestion for a ribbon design...
Covid 19 started out in one country, but then began rapidly spreading throughout the world. This is not a one country problem, this is a world problem. We need to come together as a world, not just a country. The world was affected, and as a world we need to unite! Strong as ever, united as one.
The image of the Covid 19 awareness ribbon would be all of the countries flags, or a random assortment of country flags (depending what can fit on the ribbon), taking up the entirety of the ribbon.
If the ribbon were to be displayed on a background, the ribbon should be on a gray background. The countries flags taking up the entirety of the ribbon would "pop" against the gray background. The color gray represents perspective, and symbolizes compromise - being neither black nor white. The flags on the ribbon unite the world as one, while the gray represents the need of everyone coming together and compromising on social distancing and the use of masks to help get the problem under control.
