In 2007, the World Diabetes Day logo incorporated the diabetes circle.

The global symbol for diabetes was developed during the Unite for Diabetes campaign. Why a circle? A positive symbol across cultures, the circle symbolizes life and health. Why blue? The colour blue reflects the sky that unites all nations. The blue border of the circle reflects the colour of the sky and the flag of the United Nations. The blue circle signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetes epidemic. http://www.diabetesbluecircle.org
