Originally devised by artist Gilbert Baker, the design has undergone several revisions since its debut in 1978, first to remove colours then restore them based on the availability of fabrics.
The first flag had eight colours, however, the traditional and still most common variant consists of six stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The flag is typically flown horizontally, with the red stripe on top, as it would be in a natural rainbow.
LGBTQ individuals and allies currently use rainbow flags and many rainbow-themed items and colour schemes as an outward symbol of their identity or support. The rainbow flag is also commonly used as a general symbol of social equality and individuality. In addition to the rainbow, many other flags and symbols are used to communicate specific identities within the LGBTQ+ community.

An alternative version of the LGBT Pride flag is the Philadelphia 8 stripe version from 2017, which adds black and brown stripes to represent issues of people of colour within the LGBT community.
This quality stitched Pride flag has side grommets (that’s the term apparently!) to attach with rope to a flag pole.
