    Grey is the official color.

    I have seen some ribbons in red, but that is the official color for Aids awareness.

    The Blue Circle is being promoted internationally and was the symbol for the campaign for a UN resolution on diabetes. http://www.worlddiabetesday.org/.
    I had never heard of a grey ribbon until today. Much prefer the Blue Circle.

    I think the circle is the symbol for World Diabetes Day which is in November. The ribbon is for diabetes awareness.

    The ones we have are grey with a drop of red blood and say "cure diabetes". I got them from pumpwear online--where we get Tessa's pump packs.

    I would still go for just one symbol no matter whether it is for awareness or celebrating the day. That is part of the "success" of the HIV and breast cancer campaigns, they are consistent in their media materials and emblems.
