I just saw a purple ribbon painted on a race car and dont know what it means

I know that a yellow ribbon means that you are waiting to greet a prisoner or soldier when they come home.

Black ribbons are for POWs and MIAs

Pink ribbons mean you are aware of breast cancer and want to save second base.

I think brown ribbons are for prostate cancer awareness

What are purple ribbons for?

Hmmm, from that shopping list on Wiki one of the most probable meanings for this particular ribbon is:

It is also a symbol used by 4 R Kids Sake whose mission is to protect our children from preventable injuries and death in and around cars. They were the driving force behind purple ribbon month in CA.

The race car in question is in CA and it is sponsored by a wrecking yard. Wrecking yards probably see far more than their fair share of the residue left after kids are killed in auto accidents.

A magenta ribbon is the Human Fund.

Didn't know that about purple. However, purple, orange and pink stripes means "AIDS ON BOARD, HONK IF YOU'RE HORNY!"
