The meaning behind each awareness ribbon depends on its colours and pattern. Many groups have adopted ribbons as symbols of support or awareness, particularly those of a single color, some colors may refer to more than one cause, purple being the most used colour. Probably the best known is the pink ribbon representing Breast Cancer awareness. Some causes may be represented by more than one ribbon.
The very first ribbons that were used as meaningful items in history were tokens handed to knights during the Middle Ages in Europe.
The yellow ribbon dates back to the English Civil War. From there, it spread to the Americas, where the United States Army became associated with it. A yellow ribbon is often worn by a person whose family member is away at war. In the early 1970s, the song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” was released, it was based on the song “Round Her Neck She Wears a Yeller Ribbon” which was written and copywrited in 1917. In the 1940’s the song was rewritten several times. Women tied yellow ribbons around trees, to express her desire for her husband to come home.
