Since 2007, the blue circle logo has been used to raise awareness of diabetes and convey the unity of the global diabetes community. The combined strength of the diabetes community is the key element that has made this campaign so special. From the World Diabetes Day literature, "As we all know: to do nothing is no longer an option." The blue border of the circle reflects the color of the sky and the flag of the United Nations; the icon was originally developed for the campaign that resulted in the passage of United Nations Resolution 61/225 "World Diabetes Day."
Take a Selfie!
The Blue Circle selfie app has been developed to promote the blue circle in a fun and engaging way. It is available for iOS and Android phones and tablets. Take a selfie or a group picture, then position the blue circle around your face or anywhere on the picture and share it on social media (#WDD) with a personal message.
