Thank you for publishing my photograph, @PopVille.

It is of the Progress Pride Flag (2020 version), hanging from the building that houses Vida Fitness (@VidaFitnessDC), in Washington, DC (of course).

Graphic designer Daniel Quasar has added a five-coloured chevron to the LGBT 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 recognised as the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities.

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

Quasar’s design builds on a design adopted by the city of Philadelphia in June 2017. Philadelphia’s version added black and brown stripes to the top of the Rainbow Flag, to represent LGBT communities of colour.Daniel Quasar redesigns LGBT Rainbow Flag to be more inclusive

A 2021 version of the flag has been created as well. See: The Progress Pride Flag Is Getting an Intersex-Inclusive Makeover | them.

Washington, DC will be showing its support for LGBTQ people this month as part of the Paint the Town Colorful event, happening through the month of June. More photographs to come…. Enjoy this one.
