LGBT stands for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender. It has been used since the 1990s and replaces the term gay, which on its own, did not describe the community. Often used in “Pride Parades” of the community, the LGBT rainbow flag is derived from the original 8-stripe flag that, in additional to the colors displayed in this scheme, also contained Hot Pink (#ff69b6) and Turquoise (#00c1c1). The flag was designed by Gilbert Baker and used for the first time in 1978.
The 8 original colors in the 8-stripe rainbow flag were: Hot Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Turquoise, Indigo and Violet.

    This helped me a lot! Also, I just wanted to point out that in the description of the flag, there’s a typo that makes the word “flag” into “f*g” ^ ^;

    LOL. I don’t think so 🙂

    Who makes paint with his codes?

    CMYK codes are wrong 🙁

    The CMYK are calculated from the hexadecimal colour codes (RGB, if you like). They are close approximations. True CMYK colors are dependent on the printer, quality of the ink, the material (color, nature and texture) on which the printing is to take place etc.
    Hope this helps.

    The CMYK colours are completely off I’m afraid.

    They are using values below 1 so for example the electric red – CMYK: 0, 1, 1, 0.094 when you enter those values the swatch comes out white as there is no value high enough to make the magenta and yellow strong enough to make red. The red should be more close to C:0 M:99 Y:100 K:0

    Every colour is the same – the values for each colour makes 6 shades of white.

    They have not been taken from the RGB or HEX properly and will never produce a close approximation.

    We’ve displayed CMYK values in decimal form. In percentages, the values for the LGBT flag would be as follows:

    Red: cmyk(0,100,100,9.4)
    Orange: cmyk(0,45,100,0)
    Yellow: cmyk(0,6.2,100,0)
    Green: cmyk(100,0,75.9,49.4)
    Blue: cmyk(100,73.3,0,0)
    Purple: cmyk(13.8,100,0,46.2)

    Just multiply the decimals by 100 to get the numbers in percentages.
    Hope this helps.
