Being an optical illusion, a rainbow can be seen in various places depending on where the sun is shining as well as where the person is standing. This is why there is a great variety of pictures that show a rainbow not only in the sky but falling through the window on various items, creating an aesthetically pleasing view. Because of its color spectrum that consists of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, a rainbow is very often used as an eye-catching symbol that draws people’s attention.

One of the most well-known examples of a rainbow being used as a meaningful symbol is the LGBT pride flag. Their now six-colored flag was created by Gilbert Baker who was an American artist and gay rights activist. The idea behind a multi-color flag represents the celebration of everyone being different by their gender, race, and age, and despite these differences, standing together. At first, the flag had 8 colors, each having a different meaning. The history reveals the explanation of these meanings: “At the top was hot pink, which represented sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow signifying sunlight, green for nature, turquoise to represent art, indigo for harmony, and finally violet at the bottom for spirit.”
