Awareness Ribbons

This page lists all the various symbols in the Awareness Ribbons category.

Awareness ribbons are symbols meant to show support for or raise consciousness about a cause, with different colors and patterns associated with different issues. Many activist groups and social reform organizations have adopted these ribbons as a badge of identification. As a result, a single color or pattern can often signify multiple issues, and some causes may also be represented by more than one color.

Most contemporary awareness ribbons - those that are mass-produced - share the uniform shape depicted here, as they are often worn pinned to clothing. However, a correctly-colored ribbon in any shape or size can signify allegiance to a cause, regardless of where it is placed.
