The Progress Pride Flag
Over the past few years, you may have seen different LGBTQ+ flags be introduced, this has been to show the progress of inclusion. We all know the original pride flag, but recently the progress pride flag has become popular. The progress pride flag is the one we & Sheffield United use wherever possible.
The Pride flag was created by American artist and gay rights activist Gilbert Baker, and first displayed in 1978 to be a symbol for the LGBT community.
40 years later the progress pride flag was launched. It included black, brown, pink, pale blue and white stripes, to represent marginalised people of colour in the LGBTQ+ community, as well as the trans community. “The arrow points to the right to show forward movement, while being along the left edge shows that progress still needs to be made” explained progress pride flag artist, Daniel Quasar
The progress pride flag is a recognised symbol of hope and inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community. A symbol we & Sheffield United will continue to use to help make Bramall Lane a welcoming place for all Blades.
