later pink became a popular color for flags: Amanda Curreri, "Misfits, 1979 (Sex and Art)," Hand-dyed, screen-printed, and sewn fabric; powder-coated aluminum, 68 x 48 inches. In 1978, an eight-color Rainbow Flag was designed by Gilbert Baker. Baker and friends hand-dyed and sewed the flag in San Francisco for the Pride March. A year later, in 1979, two colors were dropped from the flag: hot pink due to the limitations of commercial printing, and turquoise for the sake of symmetry once the pink had to go. Each of the original colors in Baker’s flag were assigned meaning: pink – sexuality; red – life; orange – healing; yellow – sunlight; green – nature; turquoise – art/magic; blue – harmony; and violet – spirit.
