Awareness Ribbon Solid Color Meanings

The meaning or group or organization that an awareness/support ribbon represents depends upon its color, so you can use a number of our awareness ribbon designs to make your statement of support for a cause or issue that affects you or your family simply by changing your thread color.

Below is a partial list of the different colors and the causes associated with them, arranged in alpha order by color. Some causes share the same color while others are represented by more than one color.
