Notes from the creator: The pride flag stripes were separated from the trans, and black & brown stripes due to their difference in meaning, as well as to shift focus and emphasis to what is important in our current community climate.
The main section of the flag (background) includes the traditional Pride flag as seen in its most widely used form. This design was originally created by Gilbert Baker (though it was not his first, or even second design for the flag!) and is left intact here to honor the legacy of the meaning of the stripes, which were: life, healing, sunlight, nature, harmony/peace, spirit.
The trans flag stripes and marginalized community stripes were shifted to the Hoist of the flag and given a new chevron shape. The arrow points to the right to show forward movement, while being along the hoist edge shows that progress still needs to be made.
The Trans Pride flag was originally created by Monica Helms in 1999.
The use of black and brown was original conceptualized and created into the More Color, More Pride flag in Philly, introduced by Amber Hikes in 2017.
The use of a black stripe to represent those lost during the AIDS crisis, referred to as the Victory Over AIDS flag was suggested by Sergeant Leonard Matlovich. It is elevated here to bring awareness to the stigma surrounding those living with HIV. Red also represents AIDS Awareness and the constant search for a cure.
