Two versions of the lambda flag - pink on white field, and pink on rainbow stripes.
"In 1970, graphic designerTom Doerrselected the lower-case Greek letterlambdato be the symbol of the New York chapter of theGay Activists Alliance.The alliance's literature states that Doerr chose the symbol specifically for its denotative meaning in the context of chemistry andphysics: "a complete exchange of energy–that moment or span of time witness to absolute activity".
The lambda became associated withGay Liberation,and in December 1974, it was officially declared the international symbol for gay and lesbian rights by the International Gay Rights Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland.The gay rights organizationLambda Legaland the AmericanLambda Literary Foundationderive their names from this symbol."
