The Divided Families Ribbon

The creator says :
'We came up with the idea to wear a combination of red and orange ribbon. Red for love and orange in support of human rights and a harmonious multicultural society. (An orange ribbon is worn on Harmony Day in Australia which coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.  The Initiative Go Orange for Tibet also used an orange ribbon to encourage sportsmen to highlight human rights violation in Tibet before, during and after the Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing. In Singapore, the orange ribbon is also promoted as a symbol of racial and religious harmony.)'

Wear it with pride, especially on Divided Families Day.
