New LGBTQ flag

The pride flag has changed over time in order to fairly represent each part of the community, and this year another design has appeared!

Changes were made by Valentino Vacchietti, who added a circle over a yellow stripe. There are different triangles in the left area with these colors: yellow, white, pink, blue, brown, and black. Then you will find the habitual horizontal lines of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. These are the meanings of them:

  • Red: Life
  • Orange: Sanative
  • Yellow: Sunlight
  • Green: Nature
  • Blue: Serenity
  • Purple: Spirit

Although there is only a black stripe on the flag, the black also represents all the lives that were lost in the community to HIV and the stigma that still continues around this disease.
