April is Parkinson's Disease awareness month, what color do you associate with the cause?

Recommended Posts

I have searched for events, etc. since it is PD awareness month. It is interesting that depending on what site I look at, the "color associated with PD" is either gray/silver, blue, orange or purple.

silver/gray- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_awareness_ribbons

 

blue- http://www.parkinson.org/About-Us/About-the-Blue--P--Ribbon

 

orange seems to be the color here- https://www.pinterest.com/michaeljfoxorg/shop-fox/

 

The color is less important than educating people but I'm wondering if you have one of these colors in your mind that you associate with Parkinson's Disease Awareness?

I was thinking gray, which is depressing.

Give me a bright yellow or red tulip. Blue skies, nice sunny day.

The tulip has been international symbol since 1980 when Dutch horticulturalist with Parkinson’s, J W S Van der Wereld, named a new tulip after Dr James Parkinson.

When I first looked at that design, I was "meh". More I look at it the more I like it. Parkinson's affects everyone, doesn't descremenate, but just hope they unlock the mystery of this stuff. Till then wear the color you love, with a "fight Parkinson's" or whatever message you wish.
