Guidelines for ribbon submissions:

The Awareness Ribbon Symbol is meant to be a global symbol to freely promote and support positive causes worldwide.  We will not post hate based color designations.  We will also not post or recreate trademarked ribbons that are not available for public use.  If you would like to add a ribbon to our listing, please e-mail us and we will send you our easy to fill out ribbon submission request form!

To the best of our knowledge, the ribbons listed here are in the public domain or the owners have granted permission for their use by the public to spread awareness for their cause.  If we are informed that a color/cause combo has been trademarked and the owner is not allowing its use by the public, it will be removed from the listing.  Drawing or making your own ribbons to support a cause/ribbon color combo that someone has chosen to trademark in these cases may expose you to infringement issues and is not recommended.
