Happy Pride Week

Represents the many cultures around the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness, of hope and of yearning.

The rainbow flag was first used to symbolize gay pride and diversity by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker

It first flew in the San Francisco Gay Freedom Parade on June 25th 1978.

The flag consisted of eight stripes:

hot pink - sexuality
red - life
orange - healing
yellow - sunlight
green - nature
turquoise - magic
blue - serenity
violet - spirit
