Rainbow Flag

Use of the rainbow flag by the gay community began in 1978 when it first appeared in the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. Borrowing symbolism from the hippie movement and black civil rights groups, San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow flag in response to a need for a symbol that could be used year after year.

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:

  • hot pink for sex
  • red for life
  • orange for healing
  • yellow for sun
  • green for nature
  • turquoise for art
  • indigo for harmony
  • violet for spirit

In more modern version of the Rainbow Flag, two of the stripes have been omitted, the pink and the indigo. There is not a lot of history on why these colors were removed, but the 6 color flag is now the accepted norm.
