In 2012, Colorado has suffered through a tragic shooting in Aurora and multiple wildfires throughout the state.
To honor the victims of the tragedies and show their support for the state, the Broncos will wear a special helmet decal for the 2012 season.
The sticker — pictured above — is a ribbon featuring the state flag of Colorado.
The decal will make its first appearance this Sunday night, when the Broncos take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Showing support for their home state is an important cause for the Broncos this season. As linebacker Von Miller wrote in his latest blog, “We had a lot of stuff happen around Denver in the last year and we just want to bring some happiness and joy — and hopefully some wins — back to Colorado this season.”
