Show your pride and support with the Rainbow Flag, a symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, which was first unfurled on June 25, 1978, at the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. The colored stripes are imbued with meaning: red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for serenity and violet for spirit. The most enduring symbol of the LGBTQ+ movement, the Rainbow Flag, designed by Gilbert Baker and made in the USA, was acquired by MoMA for its collection in June 2015—on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its historic decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country.
