The original Pride flag included two additional colors. What were they?

  • Pink and Turquoise correct

    Nothing brings color to our lives like the Pride flag but did you know that the original flag came with two extra colors? Pink and turquoise. Unfortunately, the two colors had to be dropped due to the standard flag manufacturer's color palette (which apparently doesn't have a plethora of colors to choose from). The rainbow flag, created by Gilbert Baker, symbolizes life, healing, sunlight, nature, serenity, and spirit. Source: Gilbert Baker, creator of the Pride Flag
