And the logo?
The ribbon is what links us all for mutual support of our shared principles. In times of change we need to focus on our common factors for strength against those who would exploit us.

It is the colour of the wine which refreshes our spirits and encourages our social life (when enjoyed in moderation) while we celebrate our achievements.
