Sea-to-Sea Pride Flag

Unit 214

The Sea-to-Sea Pride Flag is a signature of the Memphis Pride Parade with an interesting history.

In 2003, Gilbert Baker, creator of the original Rainbow flag, designed an anniversary edition of the flag for Key West Pride that measured 1.25 miles long and was dubbed the Sea-to-Sea Rainbow Flag since it stretched the entire length of Duval street from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.

In 2004, Baker had the flag divided up and given to Pride organizations across the country. A 100′ section was given to Mid-South Pride, which made its debut in the Memphis Pride Parade in 2005. The Sea to Sea flag has been featured in almost every Memphis Pride parade since.

The Sea-to-Sea flag is easy to distinguish from the Memphis Pride flag because it has 8 stripes (including Pink and Indigo), whereas the Memphis Flag has the standard 6 stripe design.
