Rainbow pride flag ''Lapel Pin''. Show your pride!
The Rainbow Pride Flagwas initially created by the late artist and activistGilbert Bakerin 1978 following the election ofHarvey Milk, the first-ever gay person to be elected to office as San Francisco city supervisor in California.The flag was made to represent the LGBTQ community collectively.And though the first flag featured eight stripes, Baker eventually dropped pink and turquoise since it was difficult to mass produce a version featuring those two colors.
Each stripe of the rainbow depicts one sector of the LGBTQ community and the queer spectrum. It is also the most commonly-seen Pride Flag featuring six colors:
Red for ''Life'', Orange for ''Healing'', Yellow for the ''Sun'', Green for ''Nature'', Turquoise for ''Art'', Indigo for ''Harmony'' and Violet for the ''Soul''.
“We needed something to express our joy, our beauty, our power. And the rainbow did that,” Baker told CNN in 2015.
