ⓘ Rainbow flag

The rainbow flag is a multi-colored flag consisting of stripes in the colors of the rainbow that is displayed in many cultures around the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness. The German pastor Thomas Muntzer used a rainbow flag as a symbol of solidarity as early as the German Peasants War of the 16th century. It is common as a symbol of the Peace movement, first used this way in a peace march in Italy in 1961.

                                     

1. Meher Baba 1924

In 1924 the Indian spiritual teacher Meher Baba designed a rainbow flag. It is flown each year near his tomb near Ahmednagar, India during the anniversary of his death on January 31, 1969. Baba explained the symbolism, saying, "The colors in the flag signify mans rise from the grossest of impressions of lust and anger – symbolized by red – to the culmination in the highest state of spirituality and oneness with God – symbolized by sky blue."

                                     

2. Cursillo 1944

The rainbow is also a symbol in the Christian and Jewish Bible. It shows Gods promise to Noah and his family to never cover the world in water again.

A Christian movement known as Cursillo, founded in 1944, uses these traditional rainbow symbols, including flags. Their version can have 5 to 7 colors, with red at the top, blue or purple at the bottom, and the Spanish words De Colores! "of colors" in large letters on the front.
