Pride 2017

Diversity is taken as read at PostNord

Through the issue of two stamps presenting the familiar rainbow colours of the Pride flag in a heart, we at PostNord are keen to raise awareness about – and honour the significance of – key concepts such as diversity and gender equality. 

The history of the Pride flag colours 

The world-famous rainbow flag was officially unve- iled by artist Gilbert Baker in connection with the
San Francisco Pride event in 1978, and before long the new flag had gained a strong following among the city’s homosexual communities. At that time, the flag – designed by artist and activist Gilbert Baker – featured eight colours, but since 1979 the number of coloured horizontal stripes has been reduced to six. The rainbow flag signals diversity within the LGBTQ movement, providing a rallying point for homosexual, bisexual, transgender and queer people, where each colour has a separate meaning.
