Gay & LGBT+ Flags & Icons
Rainbow pride flags
Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow Pride flag for the 1978 San Francisco Gay Freedom Day celebration.
The flag does not depict an actual rainbow. Rather, the colours of the rainbow are displayed as horizontal stripes,
with red at the top and violet at the bottom. It represents the diversity of gays and lesbians around the world.
In the original eight colour version.
Pink - sexuality, Red - life, Orange - healing, Yellow - the sun, Green - nature, Turquoise - art, Indigo - harmony, Violet - spirit.
Original eight stripe version
Seven stripe version with pink colour removed due to a lack of fabric (1978–1979)
Six-stripes version with turquoise colour removed and indigo colour changed to royal blue (1979-present)
Rainbow Mars - (rainbow gay)
Rainbow Venus - (rainbow lesbian)
Progress Flag. In 2018, a designer began a campaign to “re-boot” the Pride flag to make it more inclusive by adding a five-coloured chevron to represent queer people of colour as well as the trans community
