did you know that in the united states june has two flag days? there is june 14th, the traditional flag day and also on june 25th, there is another often overlooked flag day.
on june 25th 1978, the rainbow flag (which was designed and created by gilbert baker and jomar teng) flew for the first time in the san francisco gay freedom day parade.
according to the portal of all knowledge (pak) the original flag had eight stripes instead of the six that we most often encounter now. when baker and teng created the flag they assigned a special meaning to each color :
|hot pink: sexuality|
given the meanings, I think maybe we should return to an eight color flag!! afterall, what's life without sexuality, magic and art!
