What Is the Ribbon Color for Diabetes Awareness?

The ribbon color for diabetes awareness is gray, according to Disabled World. While the gray diabetes ribbon is still being used, the International Diabetes Federation has designated a blue circle named the Blue Diabetes Circle Awareness as a more commonly used symbol for diabetes awareness as of March 2015.

Awareness ribbons consist of short ribbon pieces folded into a loop as a way to represent or support different issues, diseases and causes by making a statement, claims Disabled World. They are widely used in the United States of America, Canada, U.K., Australia and several other parts of the world. One of the most well-known awareness ribbon colors is pink in support of breast cancer.
