The search engine Google, which often changes the company's logo to a Google Doodle commemorating timely events, has used the black ribbon to mark a number of incidents. These include the Charlie Hebdo shooting, the charter flight crash in Colombia in November 2016, the 2017 Portugal wildfires, and the death of Queen Elizabeth II. April 9, 2017, Google Arabic displayed a black ribbon as a mark of respect and sympathy for victims of 2017 Palm Sunday church bombings in Tanta and Alexandria, Egypt.
However, many are not happy with Google only placing a small black ribbon under the search box. The deal is, Google does not do logos for sad events - they only do them for happy events. So a ribbon, in Google's case, is appropriate. In fact, Google has only placed ribbons on their site since the beginning, you can see yourself by looking back at 2012, 2011, and 2010.

Awareness ribbons date back to medieval times when female spectators would give jousting knights a ribbon as a token of their affection or support. Today, awareness ribbons come in all sizes and colors and are symbols of support for various events and social causes. Each ribbon color has a unique meaning, and in this article, we discuss the meaning behind green awareness ribbons.
What does the black ribbon symbolize In general, black ribbons symbolize mourning, sleep disorders, and anti-trauma. While less common than others, the black ribbon has slowly gained in popularity. Keep reading to learn about what this particular awareness ribbon supports.
Since there can be multiple meanings for each color, the shade and style of the ribbon are really important. For black ribbons, in particular, the focus is typically on raising awareness about mourning and grief.
How exactly does the black ribbon come to symbolize mourning While wearing black in some form is common in many cultures after the passing of a loved one, this is especially true in Jewish funeral traditions.
Nowadays, many Jewish people wear a black ribbon that is cut instead of clothing. The ribbon (or the torn clothes) is worn for the seven-day mourning period known as shiva. Some wear their mourning ribbons for an entire month. Today, people of all faiths utilize the black ribbon as a sign of their own mourning.
Black ribbons can symbolize a variety of different ailments. Some have specific designs or prints as a way to set them apart, but most are all the same shade of black. The specific condition is less important than the support they represent.
So, where does this leave us There is no consensus on the jockey's origin. You can accept one of the legends (theories) that I mentioned above, but the fact is that there is little evidence that supports these accounts. For years I have tried to find the name of the company that first received a patent for the lawn jockey, and I have sought to identify the first designer of the Jocko version -- in both searches I have failed. Of course, a greater aid to our understanding would be to find slave narratives that discuss the lawn jockeys. But no such narratives exist, to my knowledge (I hope that I am wrong). Thus, there is no consensus on the jockey's origin, but I do believe that there is a consensus view in African American communities that black lawn jockeys are demeaning relics of a racist past. They may not have started out with a racist meaning -- or always had that meaning -- but that is the meaning they have today. There are, undoubtedly, non-racist reasons for owning and displaying black lawn jockeys, but it would be hard for an adult American to claim that he or she does not know that many African Americans find lawn jockeys racially offensive, especially the ones with jet-black skin and oversized lips.
Orange-striped ribbonsnakes are thin-bodied, moderately sized snakes with distinctly keeled scales that can be distinguished from all other snakes in the region by a combination of a dark background color, a very distinct uninterrupted yellow or orange stripe extending from the neck to the tip of the tail, and a well-defined yellow, bluish, or white stripe on the third and fourth scale rows, also extending the full length of the body and tail. The only similar species is the Texas gartersnake, which also has a mid-dorsal yellow stripe and is lateral stripe on each side of the body. The lateral stripe in the Texas gartersnake is on the second and third scale rows. A much easier way to distinguish between these two snakes is to carefully examine the side of the head. The orange-striped ribbonsnake has white along scales of the upper jaw with no markings on them and a distinct vertical white bar in front of the eye preceded by a distinct black mark. The area just behind the eye is black. The Texas gartersnake has white upper labials with distinct vertical black marks between each scale the area in front of and behind the eye is light colored (not white). The belly of the orange-striped ribbonsnakes has no spots or other markings and is cream to bluish in color. Juveniles might be confused with adults of the Texas brownsnake. 153554b96e
