Introduction: State Sexual Orientation Flags

There are a myriad of State Sexual Orientation flag designs shown on the internet but most are vapor-flags, not existing in a physical flag. Care has been taken to only include flags in this collection that actually exist physically and have been displayed and flown. These flags usually incorporate the rainbow colors in their designs in some form.

Arizona Rainbow Flag

Among the many items being sold at the Phoenix Pride Festival were these Arizona Rainbow Pride Flags as 4x6" Tabletop Flags. They are also available online for purchase as normal sized flags. Apparently Phoenix is now 17th among the most LGBT-friendly cities in the United States, at least according to an artile written by Courtney Miller in the May 27, 2015, issue of Cities Lifestyle. Who would have guessed?

Now being sold are two different rainbow versions of the Arkansas State Flag. The struggle for LGBT rights in Arkansas has resulted with same-sex sexual activities legal since 2002 in Arkansas, adoption of children by gays legal since 2011, and same-sex marriage made legal since 2014. These flags are available commerically on line as both 4x6" TableTOP Flags (Type #2) and 3x5' flags (Type #1 and #2) both on T-Shirts and as flags.

Delaware Rainbow Flag

During the campaign for legalization of same-sex marriages in Delaware, the rainbow flag with the diamond and CoA from the state flag was used. Its photos can be found here ( image) and (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 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.
