World Diabetes Day Logo Design


 World Diabetes Day Logo Design

Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. There are an estimated 336 million people living with this disease in 2011 and expected to grow to about 552 million by the end of 2030.  In 2006, the UN declared November 14th as World Diabetes Day and the blue circle logo was adopted as the official logo.

The World Diabetes Day logo is the blue circle - the global symbol for diabetes. The purpose of the diabetes symbol is to give diabetes a common identity.  The logo was developed as part of the Unite for Diabetes awareness campaign. The logo was adopted in 2007 to mark the passage of the United Nations World Diabetes Day Resolution. The logo is designed as a blue circle to represent the following
- The significance of the blue circle symbol is overwhelmingly positive.
- Across cultures, the circle symbolizes life and health.
- The colour blue reflects the sky that unites all nations and is the colour of the United Nations flag. The blue circle signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetes pandemic.

If you are at risk for diabetes, based on genetics or other reasons, go and test yourself or at least take the Diabetes Risk Test online.
