The color purple symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag.
Since 2010, CNBC has participated in Spirit Day, and this year is once again leading news networks with its participation. The network’s anchors and reporters from around the globe will wear purple on Spirit Day. The CNBC logo will appear in purple all day on-air, on CNBC.com, and on social media.
CNBC is running a Spirit Day ad on its network with the OUT@NBCUNIVERSAL employee resource group.

Andrew Ross Sorkin, Becky Quick, Joe Kernen this morning on Squawk Box:
In addition to CNBC, on-air talent from Today Show, GMA, The View, MSNBC, CNN New Day, CBS This Morning, Telemundo Un Nuevo Dia, Univision’s Despierta América, NFL Network, and elsewhere are going purple throughout the day.
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi notes Spirit Day:
#LQBTQ youth face disproportionate bullying & harassment just because of who they are. Stand against it – and WITH them – today by wearing purple to signal your support for gay youth. And use #SpiritDay in your posts. This isn’t politics. It’s dignity & human rights.
