Pride Flag, Leather Roses
Handmade Pride Flag, Leather Rose. This Pride Flag Leather Rose was fashioned after the original pride flag created by Gilbert Baker in 1978. In the original eight-color version, pink stood for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for the sun, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for spirit. It would make a wonderful Anniversary gift, 3rd wedding anniversary gift for a husband or wife, forever Valentines gift or just any everyday gift to say I love you. All roses are made to order. Just like in nature on one rose is alike.
Ah, the rainbow flag. Such a beautiful and bold statement, hard to ignore or mistake for anything else. (also easy to adapt to every kind of merchandise you can imagine)
Wikipedia has an extensive article on it, but here are the more interesting bits:
The original Gay Pride Flag was first flown in the 1978 San Francisco Pride Parade, and unlike its modern day 6-color version it was a full rainbow – it included hot pink, turquoise, and indigo instead of dark blue. Each of the stripes had a particular meaning associated with it, but mostly I think they just wanted a purty rainbow.
The pink stripe was removed relatively quickly due to fabric unavailability. The turquoise was taken out a year later when the 7-striped flag was hung vertically from lamp posts on SF’s Market Street, but the middle stripe was obscured by the post so they yanked turquoise to make it an even number of stripes. This was also when blue replaced indigo, which I assume was done to balance out the removal of the turquoise.
It’s been the same since 1979 and is recognized internationally. Awesome.
