Gilbert Baker, the designer of the iconic rainbow flag, has died.
In 1978, Baker sewed a multicoloured flag that became the symbol of the LGBT community across the world.
Baker, 65, died Thursday in his sleep, said Cleve Jones, an AIDS activist and Baker’s longtime friend. He died in New York City, the medical examiner’s office there said.
A vigil in Baker’s memory was planned Friday evening under the rainbow flag in San Francisco’s United Nations Plaza. The banner could be seen flying half-staff from the balcony of Mayor Ed Lee.
“Gilbert was a trailblazer for LGBT rights, a powerful artist and a true friend to all who knew him. Our thoughts are with his friends and family. He will be missed,” Lee said in a statement.

Hi friends and family,
I’m not sure how many of you know or remember that in 1985 Stuart McLean introduced himself to me at our Flag Store in Thornton. At that time my Father had recently passed away and the eight children were running the company in our early twenties. 70 employees at the time. Meeting Stuart changed our lives. Coincidentally, and 25 years later my daughter, Michelle, worked with Stuart’s Music Director, John Sheard, and he asked her and two of her friends to form The Vinylettes, going on tour for two years with Stuart. I am extremely fortunate to have had an electronic version of that interview with me on my phone (or anywhere at all!). It’s 16 mins or so. I thought you might enjoy hearing it knowing my gratitude and love and prayers for Stuart McLean.
