    I saw that website before when I was looking for ribbons. I like some of that jewlery. What I would really like to find is a ribbon charm that I could put on my charm bracelet that I already have. I have no idea where or how to find one though.

    Oooh!!! This website has turquiose listed. I found this after I decided I had to check out all these websites and do a little research. http://www.craftsnscraps.com/jewelry/ribbons.html

    I would guess that somewhere along the line the word got out that the ribbon was Navy Blue because it seems to on a lot of web sites. Not saying that the word that got out was the "correct" word, but it seems that turquoise isn't mentioned anywhere that I can find. It just seems all confusing.

    I think the websites just followed the leader.. I was emailing someone who had a store who has some neat things but told her since she did not reconize the color teal or turquiose for IC then I was not going to order from her.. She immediately contacted someone from the ICN< maybe Jill dont know but she change her IC color.. So of course I ordered some things because she responded so quick with the change.. If people want to help me get the color changed to the right color do as I did email those web sites and set the record straight

    Did we (as in the "ICers") ever say it was navy blue??? I have always thought it was tuqouise also?? Is it just the websites that say the color is navy blue?? If they are the ones who came up with the idea, they cannot do that. Don't we have to appove of it?? It is our color. I would assume we would get to choose. Lol.

    Actually Roxie every color has many diseases associated with that colour but am yet to find anything that says Turquoise is for IC. All web sites seem to say Navy Blue, I just think somehow a standard was made and that was Navy Blue, are we or a rep going to inform all groups of the color change as well?

    I honestly don't believe it was initially navy blue. I think it's the turquoise and maybe some websites got confused. If the ICN and maybe even the ICA have decided that it's turquoise then those are the people that matter. We're the ones that matter, not the rest of the world. We're the sufferers, we're the survivors, we're the fighters that carry the standard and if we carry turqoise standards, who in the world is to say differently?

    Almost done with the site. I'll just add in the other design later.

    HI Shelby.......is you check google........Navy blue stands for many different causes......I think turquoise will be more individual for IC than the Navy Blue would have been. Roxie

    But why did we "take on" the colour turquise if the rest of the world believe the IC ribbon to be Navy Blue? I think it should be what the rest of the Country believes it to be......Navy Blue....what do others think of just making a change to the color? What is the reason behind making the change from Navy Blue to turquise? Sorry, not trying to be difficult but wondering what the significance would be to change the color in mid "getting the word out to the world"? Shel.

    Hi guys!

    I talked to Jill about this weeks ago and she said that the ICN has taken turquoise for the color which is why the website here has that as the main color.

    I'm going to have some items with the ribbon for sale by tonight. I should have the stamps, magnets, bumper stickers, and some shirts and jogging outfits.

    I also want to do a calendar. If anyone is interested in helping with that or has good ideas of what the monthly pics should be, please contact me by pm or email at [email protected] .

    Thanks,
    Moonheart

    You guys seem to be right. I looked it up to post one on my myspace page and all of the sites list it as being navy blue so that's the one that I put up. Maybe we thought it was turquoise because the IC awareness bracelet has turquoise for the lettering?

    Hi gals,
    Yes it seems the IC Ribbon is Navy Blue not Teal (from what I have seen)....Roxie and tbn where did you find that Teal was the colour for the IC Ribbon? I agree with leelee88.....what I have found is the IC Ribbon is Navy Blue.

    Thats a good idea Jen, I know moonheart has a store for IC things like shirts and hats maybe she can help us find the ribbons.. But I posted somewhere else and have dicovered something questionable.. I was googling and seen many sites that has ribbons where you can cut and paste or buy products and all these site does not acknowledge the IC ribbon as being turquoise.. They acknowledge it as being navy blue.. So now im confused.. try googling interstitial cystitis awareness ribbons and you will see what im talking about..
