"The Rainbow Flag" shares the history behind a symbol of hope.

"The Rainbow Flag: Bright, Bold, and Beautiful" details the story of how the original 8-striped gay pride flag was created to be displayed in the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade in 1978. The book beautifully explores the importance of flags to various nations and communities, the way flags "tell us about history and heraldry and belonging." The lush vocabulary makes "The Rainbow Flag" a delight for younger and older readers alike. (As an example, here's a fun new word: "vexillology," or, the study of flags.) The language and the colorful art make for a book that is indeed "bright, bold, and beautiful."
