Ribbon Colors

What are the colors of ribbons for placings where you live?
For me in Canada it's:

First = red
Second = blue
Third = white
Fourth = yellow
Fifth = green
Sixth = purple

This is how my 4-H does it..... but they rank by scores not places most of the time

1st: Purple
2nd: Blue
3rd: Red
4th: Yellow
5th: White

I think it's interesting that purple is so high for around here and so low for the rest of you....
