GILBERT BAKER WAS THE DESIGNER (AND SEWER) OF THE ORIGINAL LGBTQ RAINBOW FLAG

RAINBOWFLAG1 Although the original has undergone several revisions, Kansas-born GILBERT BAKER’s design has endured for over thirty years as a symbol of the international LGBTQ community. You can see versions of it everywhere in TORONTO this week as our city kicks off WorldPride/2014. The first Rainbow Flag (with 8 colours) was raised at San Francisco Pride on June 25, 1978.

Red stands for life; orange for healing; yellow for sunlight; green for nature; blue for serenity and harmony; violet for spirit.
