Sir Roger Moore, British actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador supports the Own a Colour initiative. Talking about this, he said, ‘I am the proud new owner of a shade of blue, which I have named ‘Swedish Blue’. It is the colour of the Swedish flag, the homeland of my very wonderful and very beautiful wife, Kristina, and not far off the cyan blue that represents UNICEF.
