Pride Flag Guide

Gilbert Baker Pride Flag - The original rainbow flag was created by Gilbert Baker in 1978. In order from top to bottom, the colors represent sex, life, healing, sunlight, nature, magic, serenity, spirit. Due to a fabric shortage in the following years, the pink and turquoise stripes were removed and created the six stripe flag that is so recognizable today.

Philadelphia Pride Flag - This flag was created in 2017 through a partnership between Philadelphia’s Office of LGBT Affairs and design agency Tierney.

11-Stripe Pride Flag - The Seattle LGBTQ Commission and SEqual Seattle collaborated to create and raise this flag on June 1, 2018. It merges the rainbow and trans pride flag by Monica Helms, incorporating additional stripes to represent people of color, inspired by the Philadelphia Pride flag.

The Progress Pride Flag - In June 2018, Daniel Quasar released a design blending elements of the Philadelphia flag and the trans pride flag.
