History

The symbol of the yellow ribbon was inspired by the 1979 hostage-taking of 52 Americans at the US Embassy in Tehran.

During the captivity, the wife of one of the hostages asked the public to tie a yellow ribbon around a tree as a sign of hope for their release. The request was inspired by a well-known American song called "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree", which expressed hope and anticipation for the return of loved ones.

Since then, the yellow ribbon has symbolized a call for freedom, the release of hostages, and their return home.
 

Every purchase will serve as a donation for a noble cause - supporting the families of the hostages.
