RAINBOW AT HALF MAST

The state of Florida is in mourning.

By this time, the reason has spread worldwide.

The messages of condolences and solidarity are pouring in.

For that, we are thankful.

The Orlando LGBT community needs that and more.

A black background where the rainbow flag stands out.

Thank you!

Half-mast or half-staff refers to a flag flying below the summit on a pole.

In many countries this is seen as a symbol of respect, mourning, or distress.

The tradition of flying the flag at half-mast began in the 17th century. According to some sources, the flag is lowered to make room for an “invisible flag of death” flying above.
