IRRC No. 233
Technical note on the colours of the Red Cross and Red Crescent emblem
Reading time 1 min read
Should the colours of the Red Cross emblem be standardized?This seems to give concern to some members of the Red Cross movement and the ICRC has been asked the same question on several occasions. One proposal was that the colours of the emblem be defined scientifically and that only those shades which comply with the standards thus adopted be used for our movement's armbands, flags, distinctive signs, for the writing paper and the publications.
