The rainbow flag, which has become a universal symbol of hope for LGBTQ people around the world, first flew in San Francisco's United Nations Plaza for Gay Pride Day, on June 25, 1978.

It had eight colors -- two more than today's version -- and was designed by Gilbert Baker, an openly gay artist and activist. He had been commissioned to design a symbol for the LGBTQ community by his friend Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official in California.

Baker drew inspiration from the US national flag, which had celebrated its bicentennial in 1976, and an actual rainbow, which displays the colors of the light spectrum in roughly the same sequence as the flag. He assigned a meaning to each of the colors: hot pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, turquoise for magic, blue for harmony and violet for spirit.

The first flag measured 30 by 60 feet and Baker, who was then 27 years old, had sewn it by hand. "When it went up and the wind finally took it out of my hands, it blew my mind," he told CNN in a 2015 interview. "I saw immediately how everyone around me owned that flag. I thought: It's better than I ever dreamed."

A lot of wailing from the snowflakes because the organiser has attended far right events in the past.

Crocket may have been angry and misunderstood but he did offer value on here.

I see what you have done there.  You have used my unhealthy irrational dislike of gingers against me.
