"The rainbow flag has become far more than just a flag, it gives people hope."

The Rainbow Flag was designed in San Francisco and made its debut there, but how did it become the icon it is today?

It began with the pink triangle, once imposed by Nazis to identify and persecute homosexuals. The triangle had been reclaimed by the community in the 1970s as a bold symbol of remembrance and action against persecution.

Artist Gilbert Baker worked on development of  a flag. He dyed fabrics and stitched together eight strips of brilliant color into a huge banner that spoke volumes: hot pink stood for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for the sun, green for nature, turquoise blue for art, indigo for harmony and violet for spirit.

This mug will remind you, or a loved on, of the history and the meaning behind the rainbow flag.
