Awareness ribbons are popular vexilloids that carry a message by a colourful and simple means.
Like flags, depending on the colours used - these ribbons communicate a message. Perhaps the most successful and renowned ribbon is the pink breast cancer ribbon. But since there are a limited number of colours, some awareness groups use designs to convey their message. One particular unique design is the jigsaw autism awareness ribbon that a pieces of the puzzle in red, yellow, and blue.
The purpose of these ribbons is to promote public awareness, inspire hope, muster moral support, and aim for healing. One particular unique ribbon is the blue jeans ribbon that refers to rare types of genetic syndromes that often cut life short or add a heavy burden to those persons born with rare genetic complications. The jeans ribbon, is play on the word for genes. It is a unique ribbon that represents all types of genetic complications united under one ribbon - the jeans ribbon.
