This is the original 8 colour rainbow pride flag, designed by Gilbert Baker and first paraded in 1978 to rally the gay rights movement at Pride events in San Francisco.

The first hand-stitched version had 8 colour stripes: Hot pink (Sex), Red, (Life), Orange (Healing), Yellow (Sunlight), Green (Nature), Turquoise (Magic/Art), Indigo (Serenity), Violet (Spirit). A shortage of pink fabric led to pink being dropped and in order to hang it vertically without obscuring a middle stripe turquoise was also removed.

This large flag is 3 feet high by 2 feet wide (90cm x 60cm).

A quality stitched flag which has the side grommets (that's the term apparently!) to attach with rope to a flag pole, with a double stitched hem around the edge.

Made from water resistant polyester.

For UK orders, we only use Royal Mail 24 (First Class). Normally these arrive in 1-3 working days, but they can take longer.

We do not offer guaranteed delivery dates and can not be held responsible if your order does take longer.

  • Orders under £40 can't be tracked, but do have a barcode on which Royal Mail scan on delivery.
  • Orders over £40 are sent out with full tracking.

International orders to some countries are still taking longer than normal due to the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. Some international orders arrive in around 5 days (mostly to Europe) and some take 2 months. There are also sometimes customs delays.
