Oh my, People: I'm glad you asked!!

The international symbol for diabetes is the Blue Circle, which now appears at the top of this page in connection with World Diabetes Day.

To read about the Blue Circle, what it means, and where you can get logos and pins, click on this link:

I did some additional looking:

Grey or White – Gray with a red dot (to represent testing) where the ribbon crosses is the most common.

American Diabetes day in Nov. has chosen BLUE to be the ribbon color of choice.

Back to designing medical ID bracelets!!!!!

I believe it is blue. Blue is the world diabetes colors and last year they lit up buildings blue
