Progress Pride Flag

Graphic designer Daniel Quasar has added a five-coloured chevron to the Rainbow Flag to place a greater emphasis on “inclusion and progression”.

Quasar’s Progress Pride Flag adds five arrow-shaped lines to the six-coloured Rainbow Flag, which is widely recognized as the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities.

The flag includes black and brown stripes to represent LGBT communities of colour, along with the colours pink, light blue and white, which are used on the Transgender Pride Flag.

Another Happy Customer!

Another Happy Customer!
I’m sending you this note to let you know that we were very pleased with the interactions we had with The Flag Store and we are thrilled with our new flag.
We wanted to order our flag from a business in Canada and not from a big box store.  We made the right choice in purchasing from The Flag Store.  You and your entire staff  were professional, prompt and communicated efficiently to help us with our order.
