The flag is about POWER and is political

Gilbert Baker:

I decided that we should have a flag,” Mr. Baker said in a 2015 interview with the Museum of Modern Art, “that we are a people, a tribe if you will. And flags are about proclaiming power, so it’s very appropriate.”

That’s what flags are for. Flags are about proclaiming power … that visibility is key to our success and to our justice.”
