Progress flag

Happy Pride Month

Perhaps you are wondering about the new flag you've been seeing in celebration of Pride Month. The 'Progress' flag was created in response to community demand. Recent redesign initiatives in Philadelphia in 2017 and Seattle in 2018 produced updated banners to be more inclusive of marginalized populations within the community. Revisions to the rainbow flag included adding horizontal black and brown stripes to represent communities of color and light pink, blue, and white stripes to represent people across the gender spectrum.
