Learn about the diverse range of the pride flags that have been designed over the years. The variety that exists may surprise you!!!
That is why we explain each flag to you.
The history of the original pride flag should be in textbooks and taught in school. It was created by Gilbert Baker in 1977. Tasked by Harvey Milk, a historic figure in the fight for LGBTQ rights, to create a flag for the queer community, Baker created a rainbow flag with eight different colors.
Gilbert was inspired by the classic song “Over the Rainbow” from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, Baker created a rainbow flag to represent LGBTQ folks. Each color in the flag also had a specific meaning.
Hot pink symbolizes sex.
Red equals life.
Orange symbolizes healing.
Yellow stands for sunlight
Green represents nature.
Turquoise equals magic and art.
Indigo stands for serenity.
Violet represents the
spirit of LGBTQ people.
