Down Syndrome Awareness is represented by the ribbon colors blue and yellow. Blue is a color that spreads happiness among people. The color yellow also evokes happiness, and creates a feeling of energetic quality in the body and mind, as well as an optimistic view. When the yellow is mixed with the blue, it shows a mix of dependability and perseverance with optimism and a bright future ahead for people with Down Syndrome.
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is observed on March 21. On this day, people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world organize and participate in activities and events to raise public awareness and create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome. The month of October is U.S. Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
