Similarly one may ask, where did the gay flag come from?
The rainbow flag was popularized as a symbol of the gay community by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978. The different colors are often associated with “diversity” in the gay community (but actually have literal meanings).
Secondly, who created the first pride flag? Baker first created the Rainbow Flag with a collective in 1978. He refused to trademark it, seeing it as a symbol that was for the LGBT community. In 1979, Baker began work at Paramount Flag Company in San Francisco, then located on the southwest corner of Polk Street and Post Street in the Polk Gulch neighborhood.
Keeping this in consideration, what color is the gay rainbow missing?
However, because of production issues, the pink and turquoise stripes were removed and indigo was replaced by basic blue, which resulted in the contemporary six-striped flag (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet).
Why is indigo not in the pride flag?
“The only reason Newton came up with ‘ indigo ‘ is because for occult reasons he believed there must be seven basic colours that come together to make white.
