Definition: Defining the Meaning of Awareness Ribbons

Awareness ribbons are short pieces of colored ribbon folded into a loop, or representations of such, which are used in the United States, Canada, Australia, UK and other parts of the world as a way for wearers of the ribbon(s) to make a statement of support for a cause or issue. Due to their ubiquitous nature, have come to symbolize various concerns depending on the colors or the patterns used. Ribbons are now considered as a universal symbol for social or disease awareness, and a formidable path to a cure.

Main Document

"Because many awareness ribbon colors may have multiple associated meanings Disabled World is listing only the awareness ribbons regarding health and disabilities."

The use of various colored ribbons is designed to create public awareness to health, medical conditions, disability, and other issues. An awareness ribbon is defined as a piece of colored ribbon folded across itself creating a loop shape - or a representation of such. Today, awareness ribbons are used globally as a way for wearers of the ribbon(s) to make a statement of support for a particular cause or issue.

Probably the two most well-known awareness ribbons are; the red ribbon in support of those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS); and the pink ribbon which denotes breast cancer awareness. The meaning behind the awareness ribbon depends on its color(s). Many different groups, foundations and organizations have adopted these ribbons as symbols of support or awareness - as a result, various causes may often share the same, or similar, ribbon color(s).

How many awareness ribbons are there

This is a question we get asked quite often. With new awareness campaign days, weeks, and months - as well as new ribbon colors, constantly being created, we are not sure how many awareness ribbon colors there currently are - but there certainly seems to be a lot! We currently have over 80 different ribbon colors and designs listed below.

How Do I Register an Awareness Ribbon Color or Design

Currently Awareness Ribbons are not a centralized idea, there isn't really an official place to go to register a design, or color. Currently, awareness ribbons are considered to be in the public domain in most countries, and a simple ribbon of a particular color is generally not considered sufficiently original and/or creative enough to be copyrighted by a person - or group. However, in a few cases several particular designs have been granted a special trademark status. Eg. Canada has granted "official mark" status for the pink (breast cancer) awareness ribbons to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

NOTES:
