This is a partial list of awareness ribbons. The meaning behind an awareness ribbon depends on its colors and pattern. Since many advocacy groups have adopted ribbons as symbols of support or awareness, ribbons, particularly those of a single color, may refer to more than one cause. Some causes may also be represented by more than one ribbon.

Colors and meanings[edit]

White ribbonClear, pearl or white ribbon
  • lung-cancer awareness it was originally clear, referencing air and being too-often unnoticed, but evolved to primarily pearl or white for practical reasons, because a clear ribbon isn't easily visible.[1][2][3] Some sources suggest clear or white as a subset of pearl for long-term-non-smoker/never-smoker lung cancer, but there is no evidence of lung cancer organization support for this distinction.[4] Some lung cancer organizations use different colors or symbols.[5]

  • human rights for family caregivers awareness.Family Caregiver is a person that cares, at its own home, a relative with severe disability.
The colours of campaign, started in Italy on August 2014, are orange for "human rights" and blue navy against "slavery". In some countries, and overall in Italy, Family Caregiver's condition is very hard and without any juridically recognized right, not even fundamental human rights as rest, health and socialization. Effectively Family Caregivers are left alone, they cannot care their own health and economic family condition deteriorates in poverty and need. Caregiving is delegated only to family of disabled person without any support from public establishment.
Family Caregiver rights supporters utilize this ribbon especially on their dress, on their web pages (blog, FB, Twitter, etc.), as ribbon for cars and in other creative ways.[23]
