Ribbon Bar
 

I have always had a interest in the meaning of all the ribbons that I have had a chance to look at. I thought it would be of some interest to my visitors if a collection was available. Below is a list of awareness ribbons colours and their meanings. Each ribbon colour has a meaning associated with it. Most have several meanings although some are more commonly known than others. My hope is that this list will be of some help. If you would like a copy of this collection, please email me. I have placed another one of my favorite songs called "You'll be in my Heart"" by Phil Collins in the background of this page.
