Streets Of Dublin - Rainbow Flags

A rainbow flag is a multi-colored flag consisting of stripes in the colors of the rainbow. The actual colors used to differ, but many of the designs are based on the traditional scheme of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, or some more modern division of the rainbow spectrum (often excluding indigo, and sometimes including cyan instead).


The use of rainbow flags has a long tradition; they are displayed in many cultures around the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness, of hope and of yearning.


There are several unrelated rainbow flags in use today. The most widely known is perhaps the pride flag representing gay pride.
