Gay/lesbian Pride Flag

The modern pride movement began after the Stonewall riots in 1959. Each year a parade was held to commemorate the anniversary of the riots. Now parades and festivals are held all over the world to celebrate gay pride. From the late 1970’s it became common to see a rainbow striped flag flying during parades and over events. The flag originated in California and was designed by an artist called Gilbert Baker living in San Francisco in 1978.
