In 1978 Gilbert Baker designed the first rainbow flag, in response to calls by activists for a symbol for the community. Gilbert Baker a San Francisco artist, designed a flag with eight stripes: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Baker dyed and sewed the material for the first flag himself. Baker then approached a company to mass-produce the flags he designed, and found out that “hot pink” wasn’t commercially available. The flag was quickly reduced to seven stripes.
In November 1978, San Francisco’s lesbian, gay and bisexual community was shocked when the city’s first openly gay supervisor, Harvey Milk, was horribly assassinated. To demonstrate the gay community’s strength & solidarity in the aftermath of the tragedy, the Pride Committee decided to use the flag designed by Baker. It was at this point the indigo stripe was eliminated so that the colours could be divided evenly along the parade route – three colours on one side and three on the other. Soon the six colours were incorporated into a six-striped version. The flag has become an international symbol of pride & the diversity amongst the lgbti community. The Rainbow Flag colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple make it one of the most recognised flags displayed worldwide.
