This is the original 8 colour rainbow pride flag, designed by Gilbert Baker and first paraded in 1978 to rally the gay rights movement at Pride events in San Francisco.

The first hand-stitched version had 8 colour stripes: Hot pink (Sex), Red, (Life), Orange (Healing), Yellow (Sunlight), Green (Nature), Turquoise (Magic/Art), Indigo (Serenity), Violet (Spirit). A shortage of pink fabric led to pink being dropped and in order to hang it vertically without obscuring a middle stripe turquoise was also removed.

This large flag is 3 feet high by 5 feet wide (150cm x 90cm).

A quality stitched flag which has the side grommets (that's the term apparently!) to attach with rope to a flag pole, with a double stitched hem around the edge.

Made from water resistant polyester.
