Pride Flag Remix
For this project, I wanted to study the history and origins of the various pride flags and mix them up into one flag in an attempt to visually unify them. There were so many to choose from and I tried to be as inclusive as possible, but there are so many more I was not able to fit. I decided to focus on the sexuality and gender flags and some of their respective subcategories. What is fascinating is that the flags are continually in flux and continue to be a living and growing organism today. The original rainbow pride flag was created in 1978. Each color represents a different meaning: pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, turquoise for magic, indigo for harmony, and violet for spirit.
