We have included the wrap/bleed area (extended background) which will wrap around the edge of the assembled button, leaving all the colors of the rainbow flag equally sized.
Also note, that we have not watermarked this design with ‘The Button Gal’, as the rainbow flag on its own cannot be trademarked (explained in an article excerpt below). We have watermarked those designs which include our own copyrighted graphics which form part of an overall design.
“The rainbow flag has been the most widely recognized symbol of LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance since 1978, when Gilbert Baker’s design first appeared in the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade. While the rainbow flag may now be a feature at Pride celebrations around the world, an interesting fact is that it cannot be a trademarked symbol. When Baker created the flag, he intentionally didn’t trademark the flags design, explaining he had created the flag for everyone and wanted it to remain free for public use. He hired LGBTQ+ civil rights attorney, Matt Coles, to represent him to challenge any attempt from an advocacy organization to trademark it.’
