Re: Color

Pamela,

 

The most widely accepted color for diabetes, is blue. The ADA, to my knowledge, has nothing to do with this aspect. I believe it was the International Diabetes Federation, that created the color blue, for diabetes. Hope this helps.

Re: Color

 

I saw that it is a blue circle, but there are different shades, could u tell me what color of blue? Is the circle pin the only symbol of diabetes? If I were to find a blue (the right color of course) ribbon pin (like the heart/cancer have) would I be wrong to wear it in support of diabetes? I have been a type 2 for four years now and no one can answer that question for me, can you help me on this?

Re: Color

Judiann,

 

The difference in the shades of blue, could be due to the differences, in computer browsers. On my browser, it appears to be a baby blue of light to medium shade.

 

As far as the circle pin, that is the logo of the IDF, which others are allowed to use. For ribbons, the only colors that I have seen used, are blue, and gray. Go over to cafepress.com, and see the colors over there - under diabetes stuff. There may be more colors, but none that I am aware of. If you used a ribbon of blue or gray, I think you would be just fine, in wearing it in support of diabetes, regardless of which type you are.

 

Hope this helps.
