Use of the rainbow flag by the gay community began in 1978 when it first appeared in the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. The Flag Originally had eight stripes, but the present-day flag has six stripes and is officially recognized by the International Congress of Flag Makers. Today the rainbow flag symbolizes the diversity of the LGBTQ and Ally community. The rainbow flag also serves to provide a more gender and orientation neutral form of symbolism, whereas pink triangles, a mainstay of the LGBT movement, are really symbols that deal with the male homosexual. The pink triangle was a symbol that branded prisoners in Nazi Germany as being Gay men. Lesbians and other "sexual deviants" and miscreants had other symbols to bear.

i've got in no way heard of the "crimson rainbow" whether many individuals of our diverse flow have unique symbols and motives to apply them. whether, the rainbow colours are a logo of the adjustments between us and contain all human beings who fights for equality for the LGBT+ community. There are various histories of what the rainbow incredibly stands for... symbology of homosexuality in the previous, representing countless sexual desires, and so on. whether that is often known that the rainbow represents selection and acceptance, coming mutually and forming a cohesive band even with diferences.
