Use of the 8-stripe original rainbow flag by the gay community began in 1978 when it first appeared in the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. It was designed by Gilbert Baker and thirty volunteers hand-stitched and hand-dyed two huge prototype flags for the parade. The flags had eight stripes, each color representing a component of the community:

1. Hot Pink for Sex
2. Red for Life
3. Orange for Healing
4. Yellow for Sun
5. Green for Nature
6. Turquoise for Art
7. Indigo for Harmony
8. Violet for Spirit

Absolutely Perfect!!
Thank you for producing this particular flag. It is the one designed by Gilbert Baker and is the true LGBTQ Pride flag! It sees no gender, gender identity, race or creed. I never flew the 6 color rainbow flag because it was NOT the correct one, just one adopted out of default. It was a "cheaper" option. Yeah, the one used by too many groups and is subsequently confusing. I hate that pedestrian flag. I LOVE the original one you produce. If I had any complaints it would be that the teal stripe should actually be turquoise. I really do love my flag. Just a note for the next time. Love!!!!

This flew over the Utah Pride Festival main stage and was a beautiful addition to the festival. It was for the memory of the original designer Gilbert Baker.
