The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has developed a special logo for first-aid kits, the green-white cross pattern. Although the International Organization for Standardization recommends the use of a green-white cross pattern, some organizations and individuals still use the white-red cross as a sign of the first aid kit. It is worth noting that, except for the International Red Cross and its affiliated organizations, the use of the Red Cross emblem by any organization or individual is illegal, as the Red Cross is a sign of protection for all States parties under the Geneva Conventions. Some first aid kits also use the Star of Life as a symbol. Because of the religious reasons why the Red Cross sign is not applicable, the Red Crescent is a common sign for first aid kits.
