During the campaign for legalization of same-sex marriages in Delaware, the rainbow flag with the diamond and coat of arms from the state flag was used. Its photos can be found here: www.newsworks.org/index.php/local//delaware-feature/54513-delaware-pastors-hesitate-to-perform-same-sex-marriage-ceremonies (Image: www.newsworks.org/images/stories/flexicontent/l_same-sex-flag-300.jpg) and here: www.wdde.org/44516-transgender-community-equality-legislation-delaware (Image:
The diamond seems to be somewhat smaller than on the state flag (one-half of the flag width) and its color inclines towards the ochre.
A very similar flag, with a larger diamond and the inscription beneath it as in the state flag, has originally appeared at the GayJourney.COM website: www.gayjourney.com/flags/gay_flags_state.htm and is marked as having been designed by the site's author, Greg Gomes. It might have provided the inspiration for the flag currently in use, which might have also been created independently, though. Which of these is the case, is yet to be discovered; the design similarities and differences don't seem to aid either possibility more than the other.
