You probably know that the rainbow flag – designed by artist Gilbert Baker in 1978 – is used as a symbol of LGBTQ pride, but did you know that each color in the flag has its meaning?
In the well-known six-color flag, red symbolizes life while orange symbolizes healing. Yellow means sunlight, green refers to natural. While blue symbolizes harmony, purple stands for spirit.
From time to time, there has been a lot of variations in the flag. In 2021, the flag was changed to 10 colours to align with the Black Lives Matter protests, which included black to represent diversity, brown to represent, turquoise blue to represent magic/art and hot pink to represent sex.
June is celebrated as the Pride Month to celebrate the work of LGBTQ activists who are constantly breaking all gender stereotypes in the world
