Ribbons mutate further

This ribbon moves beyond just filling in the negative space in the ribbon magnet loop to blowing the design completely out of the lines. The ribbon becomes an afterthought around the cross.

I am sure that the design is supposed to be evocative of the Easter crosses one sees at most protestant churches at Easter time. Those crosses are intended to show an empty cross with purple cloth so they combine resurrection and kingship and empty tomb all in one symbol. This ribbon simply says "Support Peace".

I have been continuing my ribbon research in the hope of capturing the history and evolution of the ribbon magnet meme. There will be more to come later.
