Rainbow Flag Pin
Gilbert Baker is an American artist, but first and foremost, a gay rights activist. Gilbert Baker is the designer of the well-known Rainbow Flag, the most prominent symbol of the LGBTQ+ movement.
The Rainbow Flag was first unfurled on June 25, 1978, at the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade, which then inspired the entire world.
Since then, Gilbert Baker’s Rainbow Flag has become a ubiquitous symbol of LGBTQ+ rights causes. In 2015, the New York Museum of Modern Art ranked the rainbow flag as an internationally recognized symbol, as important as the recycling symbol.
