The first rainbow flag was designed by Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco based artist, in response to a call for the need of a symbol to represent the Gay community.

In the original design the colours represented:

  • Hot Pink for sex
  • Red for life
  • Orange for healing
  • Yellow for sun
  • Green for serenity with nature
  • Turquoise for art
  • Indigo for harmony
  • Violet for spirit
