Rainbow (gay pride) Flag

Rainbow (gay pride) Flag

I thought some history of the Gay Pride flag would be appropriate, especially the date in which it debuted.  It was first created in 1978 by artist Gilbert Baker and was shown at the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade.  Obviously, homosexuality is not a new thing and they have been fighting for their rights for a long time.  Each of the colors means something specific for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community:

red-life

orange-healing

yellow-sunlight

green-nature

blue-serenity

violet-spirit

city-hall-gay-pride-flag
