Our Rainbow Flag
In 1994, for the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, Gilbert Baker created a mile-long rainbow flag that was paraded through the streets of New York City. Afterwards, it was split into several pieces, one of which belongs to our Association. The photo shows the flag suspended from the ceiling of Copenhagen City Hall during WorldPride 2021.
It’s an eight-stripe rainbow flag, including pink and indigo. It is 30m long and 4m wide and weighs 20kg. It has minor damage and wear and tear but is generally in good condition.
Members can borrow the flag to have it in their Pride march or parade, or to exhibit it. We ask that people carrying the flag do not smoke while carrying it, and it is not to be used to sit or stand on. It can withstand rain but it must be dried before being placed back in its case and transported.
There is no charge to members for loan of the flag, but they are required to pay for transport, likely to be from Copenhagen (where it is usually held in storage), and for it to be returned to Copenhagen afterwards. On occasion we may allow it to be transported from one member to another, for example when it is required on consecutive weekends. It must be insured for €10,000 during transportation.
Non-members may hire the flag for a fee, plus transportation and insurance. The fee will depend on the type of organisation and the length of hire. Members will always have priority.
