Meaning of the 8 Colors

The original pride flag Gilbert Baker created had eight colors each with their own meanings. Pink – sexuality, Red – Life, Orange – healing, Yellow – sun, Green – nature, Turquoise – art & magic, Blue – harmony & serenity, and Purple – spirit.
Pink was removed because finding an adequate source was not possible for this color in that time. Turquoise was removed after Harvey Milk’s assassination. During the parade the colors were separated with three to each side of the street.
