Gay Pride Flags, Rainbow Flags & LGBTQ+ Flags
About Gay Pride Flags & LGBTQ+ Banners
The Rainbow Flag first appeared at the San Francisco Gay & Lesbian Freedom Day Parade in 1978, and has since become an international symbol of pride for the LGBTQ+ community. It is flown at gay pride events worldwide, as well as at homes and businesses in a show of support for the gay pride movement.
History of Gay Pride Flags & Rainbow Flags
The Original Rainbow Pride Flag features eight stripes, as opposed to the six-stripe Rainbow Flag that is commonly flown today. Designed by artist Gilbert Baker, the “Retro 8” Gay Pride Flag included hot pink and turquoise, in addition to red, orange, yellow, green and indigo. Unfortunately, hot pink fabric was not readily available at the time, and the flag could not be produced on a large scale, so the hot pink stripe was removed.
The Gay Pride Flag was modified again in 1979 to create an even number of stripes, and indigo and turquoise were replaced with a single stripe of royal blue, resulting in the now standard six-stripe version of the Rainbow Flag we know today.
Additional Gay Pride Flags
Other variations of the Gay Pride Flag include the Philadelphia Rainbow Pride Flag, which is based on the six-stripe version with black and brown added above the red to include people of color, and the Pride Progress Flag, which includes a chevron along the hoist made of black, brown, light blue, pink and white.
