The rainbow or Pride flag was designed by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The many colors represent the many kinds of people in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.

Red for life
Delicate, sacred, precious Life.
The irreplaceable gift of life
that all of us has, once as you,
Life!

Orange for healing

Sana, sana, colita de rana.
Si no sanas hoy,
sanarás mañana.

Heal, heal, li'l tail of an eel,
If you don't heal today,
tomorrow you may. Heal!

Yellow for sunlight
As brother Martin Luther King Jr. said:
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness,
Only light can do that!
Hate cannot drive out hate;
Only love can do that."

Storms cannot drive out storms,
only sunlight!

Green for nature
Sunset flames glow
Flute wind blows
Diamond water flows
Honey rocks, bird music
Butterflies grow.
Thank you, nature!

Blue for serenity or harmony
Crickets and cicadas
sing a freedom lullaby to the moon
as the stars cast rays of peace upon earth
Serenity

Violet for spirit
Spirit, the human spirit full of love,
the spirit that rises up
like the sun
for what's right!
Spirit!
