Rainbow flag (LGBT) - Wikipedia
The LGBT community has adopted certain symbols for self-identification to demonstrate unity, pride , shared values, and allegiance to one another. LGBT symbols communicate ideas, concepts, and identity both within their communities and to mainstream culture. The two most-recognized international LGBT symbols are the pink triangle and the rainbow flag. He designed the flag as a "symbol of hope" and liberation, and an alternative to the symbolism of the pink triangle. Rather, the colors of the rainbow are displayed as horizontal stripes, with red at the top and violet at the bottom.
About this item
In , gay graphic designer, Sean Campbell created one of the first lesbian flags. It contains an inverted black triangle that repurposes a Nazi symbol used during World War ll. Under the Nazi regime, women who did not conform to Nazi ideals would be sent to concentration camps and marked with an upside down black triangle badge for identification and men would be forced to wear the same in pink. These women would fight as men did and are seen as a symbol of feminism.
