Description : The Red Cross emblem on a white background, fluttering in the wind, holds different meaning for different people. For a person in trouble, it signifies hope and comfort. For others, it conveys trust and strength.
The Red Cross emblem has two main purposes : the "protective use" and the "indicative use". For protection, the emblem is a visible sign in armed conflict of the protection given to the medical services, equipment and buildings of the armed forces under international law. That protection extends to certain humanitarian organizations working alongside the military to relieve the suffering of the wounded, prisoners and civilians caught up in the conflict.
For indicative use, National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the world are allowed to use the emblems in a comparatively smaller size to identify themselves as part of a global network known as the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. However, the emblems are sometimes misused during peacetime, which may reduce its sacred meaning and its power of protection in times of armed conflicts.
