Progress flag

This year, West Pride has chosen to supplement the usual rainbow flag with another flag in the range called “Progress Flag”. It is possible to choose which of the flags you desire to rent.

The new “Progress Flag” aims to make intersectionality visible within the LGBTQI movement. The flag consists of five smaller stripes representing trans and non-binary people (light blue, bright pink, and white), marginalized POC (people of color)  communities/groups (brown, black), and also those living with AIDS and the stigma as well as the prejudices that those people face, black also stands for those who have lost their lives to the disease.
