What is a Yellow Ribbon Lapel Pin?
The yellow ribbon’s use as an awareness symbol can be reliably traced back to the early 1900’s, when a popular marching song referenced a wife who wore a yellow ribbon to honor her husband serving in the Army. This folk song later inspired the 1973 pop song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree,” which used the yellow ribbon as a symbol to support a soldier returning home to his family after being a prisoner of war. In turn, this pop hit influenced families of the hostages during the Iran Hostage Crisis, who tied yellow ribbons around trees in their yards to show support for the hostages’ safe return. Since then, the yellow ribbon has become extremely popular as a show of support for all members of our armed forces who are bravely serving their country overseas.
